Matt Harvey took a no-no into the bottom of the 7th...then Morneau hits a HR.

Yeah, I don't see why not. It may be unwise. He may have to give a refund (not sure about that), but he can do what he wants with who he lets in as long as he isn't breaking any laws.

I don't know about that; Chase Field is very clear about its rules of conduct:

FAN GROUND RULES
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Chase Field staff are committed to providing a safe, comfortable and friendly atmosphere for all of our guests. The following guidelines have been established regarding guest conduct:

Guests interfering with a ball in play will be ejected.
Guests interfering with the progress of the game or going onto the field will be ejected and subject to arrest.
Guests wearing obscene or indecent clothing and or body art will not be allowed entry into the ballpark.
Guests using foul or abusive language or gestures will be ejected from the ballpark.
Guests appearing intoxicated will be denied entry or ejected from the ballpark.
Any guest found throwing objects on the field or in the seating areas will be ejected.
I don't think anyone could really make a case that Dodgers gear is obscene or indecent.

Can they do this?

To sum up: During the Dodgers/D-backs game at Chase Field a bunch of Dodger fans decided to buy some pricey suite seats behind home plate. The D-backs' owner found out and ordered them to either move, or put on D-backs gear.

Can they do that? It can't be simply because they're visible on TV; I've seen plenty of games in other ballparks in which visiting fans can clearly be seen behind home plate.
That's a jerkish move to say the least. When you have a sign right next to that area trying to desperately sell season tickets, you should be thankful for whomever's buying your tickets, visting team fans or not. Fans of the visiting team have every right to buy any ticket they want to. If the manager finds that so offensive, he just needs to be honest and prohibit sales.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I love how one of the things Kendrick offered those fans was a round of drinks. Which are already included in the suite... /facepalm

As for the 'gift' of D-backs gear: They should have worn it inside out.

Just another rich person acting like they're doing you a favor when you buy their product. I really hope D-back ticket sales decline because of this.

I have this terrible feeling a lot of pitchers will be doing that against the Twins this year.

I'm almost glad today's game is postponed (snowing again and rain expected later). Maybe a day off is what they need to end their skid.

I have been away from my computer for a few days and with the whole Carlos Quentin/Greinke mound charging I wanted to post this as my favorite "charging" of the mound video. It's from Japan and very, very funny.

The Cubs have signed Kevin Gregg to a minor-league contract.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Gio got jacked today. That guy wears his emotions on his sleeve. His mini temper tantrums on the mound today didn't do him any favors. I don't know what happened to the Nationals bullpen. They were really solid last year. It seems like the whole team is having trouble throwing strikes and keeping the ball in the yard. Between that and Zimmerman throwing the ball all over the place this team might be a victim of buying into their own hype a little too early. That being said it is really early so they definitely have time to settle down. Just a really odd series all around.

It's still early in the season. Although, I do think there is something wrong with Zimmerman's hand. However, I am glad to see the Bravos get off to a great start, for once.

The Braves are on absolute fire. What do they do when Freeman and McCann come back. They can't tell Gattis, thanks but the stars are back and you have to go to the bench, can they? He's probably been one of the top stories in baseball this early season.

As for the Giants, nice series win in Chicago, but man what a wild game and series this was. From the weather, to the come from behinds, and everything in between. Giants were lucky to win this series, as the Cubs deserved that win today. Oh well, on the Milwaukee.
