The Baseball Codes

There's an interesting post on the Dallas Braden affair by Jason Turbow, who wrote a book called The Baseball Codes: Beanballs, Sign Stealing, and Bench-Clearing Brawls: The Unwritten Rules of America's Pastime. He thinks Braden had a right to be mad. It’s a matter of respect. And A-Rod has a reputation for dissing other players by taking that kind of liberty, so he doesn't get any slack when he does stuff like that. The post has some interesting quotes from players who support Braden's position.

The brouhaha was apparently a lucky break for Mr. Turbow, creating a lot of interest in his book.
