Is it wrong for Astro players to get beaned?

Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly took matters in his own hands and sent a 96 mph fastball toward Houston Astros' hitter Alex Bregman's head in retaliation for the Astros cheating during the 2017 season (and maybe beyond). Many people are applauding Kelly for doling out justice when MLB handed out a slap on the wrist and hope other pitchers follow his lead. Others think headhunting is dangerous and a baseball to the body won't solve anything. What do you think? ⚾

Baseball is notorious for policing themselves with a hard pitch to the body if a player was wronged. After MLB failed to hand down harsh enough penalties to the Astros for systematically cheating in 2017, a year they won the World Series, and have players who don't seem sorry at all about what they did, what did you expect opposing pitchers to do?

Sometimes, a bean ball here and there is what's needed to teach a lesson to players who think they're above the game. It's not wrong to think that the Astros deserve ample punishment for their actions.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran and former Sonoma Stompers assistant general manager Jen Ramos talk about the Astros cheating scandal and provide some alternate punishments.

Violence is never the answer, especially in sports. Joe Kelly shouldn't be lauded as a hero because he was out for blood. Headhunting like he did is especially egregious because it can actually kill someone.

No one should be wishing harm on Astros players, even if they did cheat. If you want revenge, beat them on the baseball field.
