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 it?s going to be an eye for an eye and we?re going to protect one another,? Towers said of what his message would be to the pitchers next spring. ?If not, if you have options, there?s ways to get you out of here, and you don?t follow suit or you don?t feel comfortable doing it, you probably don?t belong in a Diamondbacks uniform.?
