Idiotic baseball traditions? Intentionally hitting a hot batter is among worst

A sadly misguided pitcher took the mound for the Miami Marlins against Atlanta on Wednesday, facing one of the game’s greatest young players to lead off the game, and the pitcher decided not to compete. He chose to maim. With one cowardly pitch — Jose Ureña’s fastball taking dead aim at Ronald Acuña — one of baseball’s sorriest traditions took a hit, as well. Perhaps it will vanish completely in time. “Hit the guy” is not a proper response for a team’s failures. Acuña is one of the game’s shining lights, just 20 years old and destined for greatness. He’s a good, earnest kid who plays with flair and panache.

A’s: The little things mean a lot

So you’re in the starting lineup for the A’s, first inning, you’re getting loose in the on-deck circle, and — wait a minute, you’re out of the game? That happened to Mark Canha in Tuesday night’s game against Seattle, and the way he reacted said a lot about the A’s. Certain episodes make it clear that it’s all about the team. Only two batters had come to the plate when Jed Lowrie stepped in against Seattle left-hander James Paxton in the first inning and lined a shot that struck Paxton on his pitching arm. Paxton, later placed on the disabled list with a forearm contusion, immediately left the game and was replaced by right-hander Felix Hernandez.
