he's just let it bounce off his helmet. he'll never move out of the way. hell, he'll even stick his head over the plate with a sign on it that says "hit me here."
The guy's a cheap-shot artist. He "accidently" elbowed Hanley in the throat after Hanley slid into 2b. Another game, he grounded to 1b, and came inside the line and "accidentally" shoved a Marlin pitcher coming over to cover the bag (Nelson?) to the ground. I want a major payback.
