ok. this is a few days later, but still the most interesting thing i read about the whole shindig (off of the blog of some d-rays fan):
Turns out Gathright is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, having studied the Korean martial art from ages 8 to 18, before stopping after he got drafted to play baseball.
"Well, I've seen Gathright do some sort of ninja kick over this dude's head who was 6-foot-7 -- this roundhouse kick -- over his head just to show he can do it," Jonny Gomes said. "Yeah, I guess you can call [Tavarez] lucky."
Damon Hollins agreed Tavarez got off easy.
"Julian is a little bit lucky he didn't use none of that stuff on him," Hollins said. "We'll wait for the next time for him to break some of that karate stuff out -- if there is a next time."
