Why is there such an uproar over A-Rod getting hit by a pitch last night? Manager Joe Girardi came tearing out of the dugout, screaming at home plate umpire Brian O-Nora. I don't get it. Baseball has a system that keeps these things from getting out of hand. A player gets hit, the umpire issues warnings to both benches, indicating that the next player to get hit will result in ejections. That's the end of it. Right?

Then Brett Gardner got hit. Nothing

Then Jason Nix got hit.  Nothing again.

Then Robinson Cano got hit. And NOBODY got thrown out.

Wait a minute. Shouldn't they have...? Why didn't the umpire...?

Oh yeah, that's handled. Nice going, O'Nora.
