black sports online dusty baker wants players to box

 

Dusty Baker is from the old school, and apparently he wants us all to know that.

After Johnny Cueto sent a pitch over the head of Cubs center fielder David DeJesus, his fellow teammate Matt Garza proceeded to go off on Cueto.

Garza told Cueto, among other things that “if he has something to say about it, he knows where to find my locker and definitely I’ll find his.”

Reds skipper Dusty Baker weighed in on the matter and has a solution via MLB.com:

“You got something to say, you go over there and tell him. Johnny ain’t running. Know what I mean? A guy can say what he wants to say, but it’s better if you go over and say it to his face.

I just wish, just put them in a room, let them box and let it be over with, know what I mean? I always said this. Let it be like hockey. Let them fight, somebody hits the ground and then it’ll be over with. I’m serious about that. I come from a different school. Guys didn’t talk as much. You just did it.”

A lot of good advice Dusty is giving, but the odds of MLB ever allowing hockey style of fighting is pretty slim.

Moral of the story, be from the old school and say what you have to say to a man’s face.
