Jackson was a victim of being blatantly seen in the video. He was in the pile with Shields and they panned over right when he hit someone and lost his shoe

Lester threw at 3 different Rays players after the warnings were given (he was not ejected, but IMO should have been) His first one was a curve to CC and looked innocent, but the one to Aybar went behind him and the one to Floyd almost hit him in the head

I seriously have no idea what Casey did

Do most Red Sox fans actually believe that? :-b


What was wrong with it? It was a hard slide. He might have been intentionally going hard, but it's still not outside of the rules. I don't get why people are so sensitive these days. If you don't like it, do something about it. Shields and the Rays did and now both teams paid the price.

It was incredibly late, and he seemingly tried to knock his elbow/arm into Iwamura's midsection. But don't take my word for it, just ask Coco if he was trying to hurt him, he already gave his answer.

Quote please? I haven't seen a quote where Coco said that he was intentionally trying to injur/hurt someone. Even if he was, what's the difference between that and intentionally throwing at a batter?

“He put his whole knee in front of the bag, and it’s not something you do as an infielder. You can do that, but that’s shady,” Crisp said. “And he’s not a bad dude, but that’s shady. It is what it is. You gonna hurt me, I’m going to come back and hurt you.

Deerayfan has supplied the quote.

Shields threw at Coco in response to Coco attempting to hurt his player. It wasn't even like he aimed for his head, either, but Coco still decided to start a brawl. What an idiot.

Here is the one thing I didn't get. He knew they were going to hit him, why not just take it and go first and let it end, or let Lester hit someone :-?

One thing I forgot to say, I gained a lot of respect for Pedroia. The guy got hit on accident in the first and didn't make a big deal about it, and than during the brawl he was trying to keep people out of the brawl and not further it. He is a class act IMO ;-D

Yeah, all 170 pounds of him. That worked out well on a field of huge baseball players.
