Pete Alonso says he could easily “put someone in the hospital” after getting reverse Dom Zimmer'd by Stubby Clapp

ICYMI, things got weird in St. Louis on Wednesday. A night after hitting Pete Alonso in the head—the second time the Mets’ slugger has been drilled in the dome this year—the Cardinals came back and plunked JD Davis on the foot. Though innocuous on its own, the Mets, who have been hit by 19 pitches this season, the most in the majors by a massive margin, reached their breaking point. Down five in the bottom of the 8th, reliever Yoan Lopez sent one up and in on the Cardinals’ Nolan Arenado. Lopez said it wasn’t intentional. The Mets swore up and down they were still trying make a comeback. But the Cardinals, self-appointed arbiters of baseball ethics, did not care for the taste of their own medicine one bit, and quickly emptied the dugout and bullpen.

Pete Alonso upset with Stubby Clapp over ‘cheap’ move

Pete Alonso was not at all happy with the St. Louis Cardinals after the bench-clearing incident during Wednesday’s game. Nolan Arenado was upset after the Mets threw up and in on him in the 8th inning as retaliation for JD Davis being hit in the top of the inning. The benches from both sides cleared, leading to a scuffle between the teams (video here).

Nolan Arenado, Stubby Clapp ejected for Mets-Cardinals incident

The New York Mets have once again been involved in a bench-clearing incident, this time against the St. Louis Cardinals. The first two games of the Mets-Cardinals series featured eight total hit batters, including three Mets hit batters on Tuesday. The situation carried over into Wednesday, when New York’s J.D. Davis was hit by a pitch on the ankle and forced to leave the game.

Why Stubby Clapp is the right pick as St. Louis Cardinals’ manager. And why he isn’t.

When the St. Louis Cardinals added Stubby Clapp to their major league coaching staff before the 2019 season, it was a move made in part out of necessity. The then recently-promoted Mike Shildt needed to backfill his coaching staff, and Clapp, who had just managed the Memphis Redbirds to a Triple-A championship, was deserving of a promotion.
