Unwritten Rules in Baseball

I just read a fascinating article by Jerry Crasnick about unwritten rules in baseball. In each case, Crasnick gives a scenario, and Goose Gossage (Hall-of-Fame relief pitcher), Jim Palmer (HOF starting pitcher), and Bert Blyleven (will soon be, and should already be, an HOF starting pitcher) gave their opinions and possibly some anecdotes in each case. It was interesting to contrast the reaction of Palmer with those of the other two. Anybody want to guess where I would like along this spectrum? ;)
