Hitting behind the runner gets you nothing but your teammates' handshakes.

Interesting also that Shoppach is on the no triple list, because .... he is the last guy to record 5 XBHs in a game.

I'd hope, that my team would have my back, if I were the guy, leading off the next half-inning, after Zambrano got hit by a pitch. (Or, I'd at least swap out the corked bat, for a much weightier model.)

I'd throw at him every time he was winning and my pitcher was tiring. He's so easy to knock off his game that you'd be a fool to just let him get comfortable. Mess with his game and he'll fall to pieces and pitch like crap.
