Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena decided to take matters into his own hands to slow down Atlanta Braves' Ronald Acuna's hot streak at the plate, pegging him with a 97 mph fastball, as the unwritten rules of baseball allow. Some took this as another example of the unwritten rules ruining the game with its hypocrisy. Others love the way the unwritten rules police the game. What do you think? ⚾

Beaning someone for being good? There's nothing more cowardly in sports.

The unwritten rules of baseball are hypocritical and outdated. Get rid of them before they ruin the game.

Keith Hernandez played the game in an era where toughness actually mattered. The unwritten rules need to be in the game.

The unwritten rules are there for enforcement. It keeps cocky people in check and prevents them from ruining the game with antics unbecoming of real players. The league needs something like that.
