Strasburg certainly missed his pine tar. What was it, he gave up more walks in that game than in his last six games combined?
Peralta didn't miss it.
As everyone knows, I have had my issues with the way that Maddon manages in-game. But I have always said that I have no problem with him personally and would love to have him as my next door neighbor. Sorry Smitty...lol.
This was one of his finest moments as manager here. There are unwritten rules to the game and Davey crossed the line. Especially since it was one of his former players. Davey looks like a huge hypocrite because he had no problem with Peralta doing it as a Nat. And not to mention how the coach that actually called Peralta on it was someone that he considered to be a personal friend and mentor.
Although, I do think that it was quite funny when Johnson called Joe "the guru". Ha ha!
