07:35 AM ET 05.07 | On Wednesday, in clubhouses all over the Major Leagues, players were asked for their thoughts on pitch tipping and what it would mean for baseball if the accusations are true. The results were a mixture of disbelief, sadness and, in some cases, anger. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who considers himself a friend of Alex Rodriguez, said the allegations "sound crazy" and that he didn't want to believe the Yankees third baseman would even think of doing something so egregious. He also didn't pull any hypothetical punches when asked how he would deal with a teammate who engaged in such cheating. "I would beat the crap out of him," Ortiz said. "I mean, seriously. You're my teammate. I mean, I don't care if that's your brother pitching out there. We're trying to win the game. That's not the right thing to do."
