Should Huff Have Given K-Rod "the Joba Treatment"?

The only thing that could've been more entertaining about Aubrey Huff's walk-off single in Thursday night's 5-4 comeback victory was if he had given K-Rod "the Joba treatment."

Granted it wasn't a home run, but have we established rules for giving a pitcher the Joba treatment? Do you have to go deep to mock a guy who favors theatrics on the mound, or will any clutch hit suffice? Perhaps we should ask the Yankees' Brian Bruney what he thinks.

The O's don't play the Mets again this season, so retribution wouldn't be an issue. Perhaps Huff just doesn't want to offend a guy who may be his teammate by mid-July.
