This time Tavarez punched my Gathright. Watch it Tavarez...

Tavarez, Gathright ejected in BoSox-Rays brawl

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2386484

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Boston reliever Julian Tavarez punched Tampa Bay's Joey Gathright on Monday, and both were ejected after a brawl that began with a close play at home plate.

Gathright was sliding into home in the eighth inning when he was tagged out by the often-hot tempered Tavarez, who stepped on the outfielder's right arm. Gathright, still on the ground, then used his left forearm to push Tavarez's left knee.

Before Gathright got up, Tavarez struck a blow in the area of Gathright's left jaw, and players flocked in from the benches and bullpens. No other players appeared to throw punches, and order was restored after a few minutes.

Gathright began the play at second base, and Julio Lugo singled to left field, scoring Greg Norton. Lugo was caught in a rundown between first and second and, when Gathright broke from third base to home, second baseman Zach Borowiak threw to Tavarez.

Boston went on to win the exhibition game 12-11 with two runs in the ninth.

The Red Sox and Devil Rays have been involved in several brawls and instances in which batters were hit by pitches in recent years. Tavarez is in his first season with Boston.

How pathetic. Tavarez punches Gathright when he's still on the floor. Serious lack of class right there. :-t

The article mentions Gathright's jaw, but in the picture it looks like a glancing blow.

Thats not the picture of the first hit. This site has some GREAT pictures of it: http://www.bostondirtdogs.com/

Well it looks like the Sox have found their replacement for Izyy Alacantra, the guy who dropkicked a catcher before charging the mound.

I've always liked Tavarez' fire and competitiveness, but he is a total dirtball.

right. punching someone in the stands or kicking a groundskeeper who is on the ground... punch high. kick low. that's the way to do it.

oh, and throw batteries from the stands. because you can't otherwise reach.

but punching someone on the ground? right out.
