HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't stand Mattingly or the Dodgers, so this made me giggle until I snorted. Snork!
As for the rule, it's kinda stupid, but it is a rule and something Mattingly should have known. And exactly what was James Loney asking? "Hey, Don, so, if the ball is hit to me, do I try to catch it!????"
Mound visits are idiotic anyway.
Kudos to Bruce Bochy. Had he not protested, the umps probably would have let it go. THIS is a manager who has his head in the game.
