Arizona GM: "Eye for an Eye"
The Arizona Diamondbacks aren't playing around anymore. GM Kevin Towers gave teams fair warning: Hit our guy and we go after yours.
This is a reiteration from his comments in October after first baseman Paul Goldschmit was hit by a pitch.
Here's what he had to say on his weekly radio show:
"But I think come Spring Training, it will be duly noted that its going to be an eye for an eye and were going to protect one another, Towers said of what his message would be to the pitchers next spring. If not, if you have options, theres ways to get you out of here, and you dont follow suit or you dont feel comfortable doing it, you probably dont belong in a Diamondbacks uniform.
