Teammate hits you by mistake and you physically assault him? That's just wrong.

An athlete on a losing streak is someone to be wary of. This sort of thing happens all the time in sport. Aggression is rewarded in athletics and it doesn't simply go away once you walk off the field.
Much ado about nothing.

If you get whipped in the eye because your teammate is throwing a temper tantrum he deserves a beating

Fielder is a joke, my opinion of him just plummeted overnight. Yost is a bigger joke. It is one thing to have family secrets, it's another thing to act like it's a family secret when it took place on the front lawn. Shame on the MIL organization for not having the nads to discipline because they're in a pennant race.

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

Why is Parra getting off clean for hitting fielder in the face with his jacket

Because it was a mistake. WTF, is Fielder 12 years old? Someone deserves a beating for something as trivial as that? I'd hate to see what would happen if Parra backed his car into Fielder's in the parking lot. I guess Prince should really put the beat down on Manny if that were to happen. :-B

I can only base my opinion on what I know. Parra didn't do anything that I saw. I didn't even notice the jacket hitting Fielder. However, even if that's the case it hardly merits that response. It's the type of response you'd expect in the 5th grade not among grown, professional men.

Lol at thinking a jacket whipping you in the eye on accident deserves a confrontation like that, maybe "Hey watch wth you're doing" but not that.

This is the same Prince Fielder who got tossed at the end of the Cubs-Brewers series for striking out swinging and then telling the umpire that it was "****ing horseshit" and throwing a huge temper tantrum and not leaving the bench.
