Hat Tip: HollywoodSportsChick:
Players get hit all of the time. And, yes, sometimes a batter gets thrown at intentionally.
Fielder needs to take a deep breath and realize that it's not personal.
Heck, during the heyday of the 60's when Bob Gibson and Don Drysdale ruled the mound, "message pitches" were often sent towards the head. So, Fielder should consider himself lucky that today we have a more refined ethical system on the diamond.
Message Sent. Loud & Clear. The Dodgers are in the stretch run and signaling that they won't be pushed around.
