Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier was outspoken Thursday morning in his reaction to Jose Urena hitting Ronald Acuna with his first pitch Wednesday night, which sparked a melee in Atlanta. "I was pissed off. Plain and simple. ... For Urena to do that, just absolutely uncalled for -- and I'm putting that lightly. I'm not gonna use any cuss words -- I could -- [but] totally uncalled for," Kiermaier said. "And I'm speaking for a lot of other guys, but, I got a kid on the way, coming November now, so if you try to hit me on purpose, you go high and tight, that's risking health problems and, I'm not gonna say life-threatening, but, that baseball can do a lot of damage to someone."

Braves rookie Ronald Acuna, who had homered in five straight games, was drilled by Marlins starter Jose Urena on his first pitch Wednesday night -- and that didn't sit well with his fellow major leaguers. Rays leadoff hitter Mallex Smith, in the Bronx to play the Yankees, had this reaction when he saw the play: "I was pissed. I don't like that they hit him. I don't think he showed nobody up. I don't think he showed nobody up on his home runs. ... You don't hurt a guy to stop a guy -- you stop a guy."

We were just talking about Sergio Romo's role on the podcast, and there he is with a 1-2-3 9th for his 13th save. Since June 1, he's 12-for-15 in saves with a 1.29 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 28 appearances. I count only 15 current closers that I would DEFINITELY rank ahead of him.
