and what is your opinion on don zimmer's actions? how about garcia sliding into walker? or the bullpen man getting the tar beat out of him? or what about what posada said back to pedro? you're not contemplating everything that happened.
That wasn't the issue here. If you want to know:
1. Zimmer was an idiot to go running at Pedro. Pedro could have just moved out of the way of a 72 year old man with bad knees but he threw him down. Overall, Zimmer didn't need to go after him. At least he had the decency to apologize for his actions.
2. The situation dictated that Garcia go in hard but what he did was unnecessary and wrong.
3. The facts in this case are unknown but at least I can say that I have no idea why the Red Sox would have someone out there. He had no business being in there, especially cheering, yelling, etc. Once the true facts are known, then we can comment better. I'm not saying that he deserved to be beaten down but if you were the RF in that case, I would hope that you would go over there when there was a scuffle. Garcia had no idea what was going on and went to his aid. Again, let's wait for the facts here.
4. I don't know what Posada said
but if a pitcher throws very close to someone's head and then points to his head, he can say whatever he wants. He didn't rush him or anything. You are reaching here.
You tell me that I'm not looking at the facts? It seems to me that you are reaching here. I have said in this or other threads that they were all wrong to a degree but this whole situation would not have occured if Pedro didn't hit Garcia. To miss that badly in that situation doesn't smell right to me.

I just read my previous comments in this thread and I did comment on other things.
