Last week ok the show, we talked about a brawl that broke out during the Dodgers and Padres game.
During the game, Padres pitcher Zack Greinke hit Carlos Quentin with a pitch, and the two exchanged some words.
Quentin then charged the mound and started a full on fight that left Greinke with a broken collarbone.
Check out the video of the brawl here:
At the beginning part of the game, someone threw way inside on Kemp so we all knew there was going to be some form of retaliation to some degree.
Here is the thing about baseball, throwing inside is a part of the game. The ball that was thrown at Kemp was much closer to his head than the pitch thrown to Quentin.
Also, Quentin has the reputation of not moving out of the way for inside pitches. He’s been hit 97 times since the beginning of the 2008 season.
He is a plodding mass at the plate so for him to complain that someone is throwing balls at him intentionally is stupid. He's just a slow moving, lumbering lump…that ball was not a problem and this whole fight could have been avoided. Now Greinke is on the disabled list after Los Angeles signed him for $147 million and Quentin has been suspended for eight games…it should’ve been as long as Grienke is injured.
