Well dude...maybe the pitcher isn't a cro-magnon who wants to break someones rib or annihilate a kidney! Maybe he's under instructions from the manager and he's fulfilling it without ruining a career.
Especially if it's the third guy he's hit in 2 innings, down by over 10 runs. Obvious without being obvious.
