let the players sort it out.
It looks to me like they did. This goes back to that bat flip obviously. He had to have known at some point he was going to get plunked. He did get thrown at and, then instead of realizing what he did to deserve it, he tries to take out somebody else to get even. He picked the wrong somebody else. He should've let his guys handle it the next half inning instead of trying to get even himself.
