Shoving Match during BP between Cards and Bucs

Postby Rirruto » Wed Aug 24, 2005 7:43 pm

The St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates got into a brief shoving match during batting practice Wednesday night, prompting the umpires to hold a pregame meeting with managers Tony La Russa and Lloyd McClendon.

It did not appear any punches were thrown during the four-minute scuffle, which occurred with the Pirates finishing up their hitting and the Cardinals stretching. St. Louis pitching coach Dave Duncan and Pittsburgh hitting coach Gerald Perry appeared to be restrained by teammates.

``There was some pushing and shoving, just two competitive clubs,'' McClendon said. ``Both clubs want to win. Things probably got a little bit out of hand.''

I wonder if McClendon "stole" any bases

I'd love to see McClendon unleash a flying elbow smash onto a small and frightened David Eckstein. That woudl be worth the price of admission. ;-D

File this under "Stupid Comment of the Day."

Have you even seen the video? If not, it's on ESPN. Go watch it.

The AP is 100% wrong on this story. If you watch the video, you'll see two things:
  1. Duncan was definitely punched by Perry, and
  2. Duncan did nothing obvious to instigate it.
Watch the video and you'll see that Duncan and McLendon were having their own conversation behind the batting cage. Suddenly, Perry just walks up out of nowhere and clocks Duncan.

Totally unprovoked by Dunc, and totally classless on the part of Perry. He should be fined, suspended, and grounded to the same room the Marlins' bat boy was sentenced to.

ESPN reported that Duncan said something about Perry's momma? :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah, I saw the video. What you said is exactly what happened.

Both teams are classless for taking something that happened earlier during the course of a baseball game and bringing it off the field. I don't think that's hard to understand.

Of course something's going to get discussed. There's nothing classless about that. In fact, it's the exact opposite. Discussion equals diplomacy, and if you are telling me diplomacy is classless...

Anyways, it's indisputable that the only classless person in the altercation was Perry. To make that claim on anyone else is flat-out wrong.
