Aki’s Junk Is Like A Magnet

First Shelley “Duvall” Duncan of the Yankees tried to spike Devil Rays star second baseman Akinori Iwamura in the junk.

Then Coco Crisp of the Red Sox slid hard into Aki’s groin.

And now look where Houston’s Carlos Lee’s hands are:

The St. Pete Times has another photo of the incident and fun quotes from Aki and Manager “Coach Joe” Maddon.

My favorite is from Maddon:

“[Umpire] Bob [Davidson] had a conflicting opinion as opposed to mine. He thought it was a good baseball play, which I agree with. It is a good baseball play if you get away with it.”

    With this latest incident it’s obvious that Aki’s reputation as a tripod has followed him over from Japan, and opposing players on every team feel obligated to conduct a “package check” on him to substantiate these rumors.

    Funny thing is I bet he never had it happen to him one time in Japan – not just the attacks on his balls, but just being attacked in general.

    The umps seem way too lenient when it comes to runners breaking up double plays. I can’t remember the last time I even saw a runner get called out, even when the runner slid into the fielder five feet from the bag. I guess as long as the fielder has not released the ball, they’re fair game.

    This is the closest rule I found, and it doesn’t mention “interferes… act of throwing”:

    Rule 7.09(g)
    If, in the judgment of the umpire, a batter-runner willfully and deliberately interferes with a batted ball or a fielder in the act of fielding a batted ball, with the obvious intent to break up a double play, the ball is dead; the umpire shall call the batter-runner out for interference and shall also call out the runner who had advanced closest to the home plate regardless where the double play might have been possible. In no event shall bases be run because of such interference.
