A friendly note to Guillermo Mota and the Los Angeles Dodger pitching staff.

Please don't throw at Prince Fielder.


Fielder attempted to enter the Dodger clubhouse last night after being drilled in the ninth inning of a 17-4 L.A. rout of the Brewers.

In a classy move by Mota, he tagged Fielder with two outs in the ninth, admittedly as retaliation for Chris Smith tagging Manny Ramirez with a pitch in the seventh, as the Dodgers try to reclaim some of the manhood they lost from the Philly playoff series last fall.

Hey guys, maybe you should go after Ryan Braun next time.

While he may have a more intimidating nickname, "the Hebrew Hammer" is less likely to try and tear into your clubhouse and destroy members of your bullpen.

You might need those guys in October, Joe.

Luckily for Torre and members of that poor pitching staff, teammates Bill Hall, Casey McGehee, and an army of security guards were on hand to fend Fielder off.

In what may have been his greatest contribution to the Brewers this season, Hall and Co. helped keep Fielder in the lineup and out of jail by restraining him before he smoked someone.

It'll be interesting to see how things play out tonight.

But if the Dodgers know what is good for them, they will pitch the big boy outside and move on with their playoff-bound lives, pitching staff healthy and intact.
