It's funny. They were talking about that about two weeks ago on MLB XM radio, the show Power Alley. General consensus was pretty funny.

The one guy was saying, well if you have a guy who does that constantly and is thrown out, it's going to get on everyones nerve. The coach, his teammates, etc. But like in the case of Ramirez...he is done it two or three times and scored on every play. Then the coaches are saying, well he was wrong I was right.

Coaches don't like to be proven wrong, but they are human beings just like everyone, they'll get over it. Especially if the player they told to stop scores.

Sort of damned if you do damned if you don't.

But hey, as long as Hanley keeps blowing by a stop sign and scoring the run i'll slap him on the back and say nice athleticism, awareness, confidence etc.
