Joe Maddon Likens Cardinals to Tony Soprano After Anthony Rizzo Hit by Pitch

September 19, 2015 by  

Things are getting heated in the National League Central, and it's not just in the standings, either. 

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon went off on the St. Louis Cardinals, comparing their actions to those of fictional mobster Tony Soprano.

Maddon's tirade was sparked by Cardinals reliever Matt Belisle hitting Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo during Chicago's 8-3 victory Friday. Chicago believes Belisle did so intentionally as a response to Dan Haren hitting St. Louis slugger Matt Holliday in the head during the fifth inning.
