Why are we advocating for guys to be hit, and potentially hurt, over things (bat flips) which have become so prevalent in the game nowadays? It didn't hurt anyone. It was done in Yankee Stadium, not Citi, and was at a big moment in the game for a team in the pennant race. We need to put blinders away for a second. If the situation was reversed, and a Mets player was hit after a bat flip, would you be the first calling for the opposing pitcher's head?

This guy (kid, hopefully) was posting the exact same bs about throwing at players' heads when he first joined NYFS and little useful since.

You think Aaron Hicks flipped the bat? I've seen Jay Bruce hold onto the bat longer than Hicks did..

The Yankee pen is ridiculous. Robertson might be the 5th best arm out there.

Not sure I've seen every AB, but definitely most of them. Has Dom Smith hit a ball hard yet? He's the king of slow bouncers up the middle, if the pitcher doesn't snag it first.

He'll adjust, but he's going to hit into a lot of DPs.

You're not accounting for the game changing defense, though. Will literally change the game of baseball.

Most amusing Dom nugget was the grsphic that listed him as 6' 185.

Robles at best is worth an inning. Anything more is a disaster. And Terry should know this already.

This just isn't true. He's actually been incredibly effective going multiple innings throughout his career, including this year.

His stats in his 9 outings of multiple innings this year:
16.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 8 BB, 26 K

Last night was just the second time he's given up a run in a multi-inning outing all year.
