ukjohn, How is Carlos Silva small? Smaller than Dunn, sure by a little bit, but at 6'4 and 240 pounds Silva doesn't give up much in size to Dunn, and Silva might have good fighting skills.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Silva was throwing at Dunn because Bowa probably ordered him to do that to revenge him trying to injure Lieberthal. I don't care what anyone says, going that aggressively into a play in a 10-0 game where someone could get seriously injured is just classless. If it was a one run game, it would be more excusable. Lieberthal's tackling of Dunn from behind before he could get to the mound was just classic.

Lieberthal said he didn't care about getting hit.

jdh, your recent remarks really bother me. in your post, you explicitly say, "I don't care what anyone says"...and man, that just says it all.

every sport in which i've competed, the philosophy was always been to play like you're losing and there's no time left, and this is your last chance to win. dunn and lieberthal exemplified that spirit. your political softy approach to competition exemplifies the problem with professional sports today.

or maybe it's me. i grew up watching charlie hustle, wild abandon and selfless pursuit of competitive dominance. maybe i'm outdated, at 28 years of age. but i'll tell you what; watching two players crash into each other at the plate, with oppositional aims--one to knock the ball free, the other to hold it--is what baseball is all about.

this, regardless of the score. who cares what the score? you're not ahead until the game is over.

yeah, yes...

Don't you think Dunn risked gettting injured just as much as Lieberthal

All I know is the look on Dunn's face as he was shoestring-tackled was priceless. Kinda, "Wha? Why am I falling, my legs! I can't move my legs! (Ducks a Silva cheapshot)...I'm crippled...Ahh......oh, it's just you, Mikey"
