With the news that Phillies bullpen coach, Mick Billmeyer, allegedly used binoculars to rely signs to Phillie hitters, Phillies Nation gives his take on the "unwritten" rules in sports.
This is always an interesting topic because most everybody has differing opinions. For me, I had played baseball my entire life up until college, and like the others who did the same, I have pretty much been through and seen it all in baseball. I can remember standing on second base and the thought of looking at the catchers fingers sometimes crossed my mind but I never did. This is not because of any "unwritten" rules of the game, but because I felt like I had much better things to be worrying about...like getting picked off or looking at the third base coach. By now everyone has heard about the Dallas Braden and Alex Rodriquez feud and to be honest I just think the whole thing is silly. He sounds like that 4th grader who always made the big deal about some 1st grader sitting in the back of the school bus. So with that, like the article says, just please shut up and play baseball. no comments
