He should have expected the Yankees players--like any other human being--to go to the cops that were within fifteen feet and have the guy escorted.
To jump the guy is absurd. They should be arrested.
If they jumped him for no reason, then I agree. Are we certain that there were cops right there? Unfortunately, there is no video of the incident until everything was already out of control. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall of that bullpen there.
I look at it like this.......Camden has particularly bad areas in my state. If I am walking around there at 2 A.M., do I deserve to be robbed? Absolutely not. Should I expect to be robbed? Quite possibly. My point is that people should be using common sense. Common sense dictates that there is no reason for a Red Sox employee to be yelling and waving a Sox towel in the Yankees bullpen at that point of a highly emotional playoff game between the 2 biggest rivals in sports. At any point would be questionable judgement at best but this game was already out of hand.
Again, I think that we should wait on the facts on this 1. We just don't know enough to know how it went down.
On another note, kudos to whoever decided to stop serving beer at that point. It could have gotten much uglier.
