I kinda like the Phillies' strategy of just hitting A-Rod with pitches as often as possible. Now, with Joe Blanton hitting A-Rod in the top of the first with one out and men on, making his situation worse, the umps have warned both sides.
And CC Sabathia has yet to throw a pitch in this game.
Tim McCarver says that this advance warning will hurt Sabathia's ability to throw inside.
Who else thinks he's wrong?
