Pedro could of killed Zimmer. Who rushed who again? Zimmer is lucky all he got was a little shove to the ground. Very lucky.
You are right about Zimmer rushing Pedro. Zimmer aplogized for rushing Pedro. I don't think Pedro should have thrown Zimmer to the ground like that though.
What was Pedro supposed to do? 1) Run away? 2) Stand there and let Zimmer get some punches in until someone stopped him? 3) Shove him to the side and just let it be over?

I'd have to go with Cobb all time.Interleague play? "Don't like it," Everett responds. "They only have it because of two teams [the New York Mets and the New York Yankees]. It's all about the money." Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter? "Not a star." The Mets, one of his former teams? "All those [management] people are hypocrites and idiots." The Atlanta Braves' starting pitchers? "You can run on them all day." Big cities? "Hate 'em. I need space." American League baseball? "Boring." Dinosaurs? "Didn't exist."
Uh, come again?
"God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve," Everett said last Friday, before the Red Sox lost two of three in Atlanta. "The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."
What about dinosaur bones?
"Made by man," he says.
Everett has trouble, too, with the idea of man actually walking on the moon. After first rejecting the notion, he concedes, "Yeah, that could have happened. It's possible. That is something you could prove. You can't prove dinosaurs ever existed. I feel it's far-fetched."

I remember when he gave a pitcher the finger while he was rounding the bases after hitting a home run.
