Should be with the Minnesota Nice Twins. No brahls, no fight in them.

Bush League - pitiful display of sportsmanship

For those who said Greinke would never have considered the twins, well maybe he should have. With the twins passivity he probably would not have a unbroken collarbone this morning...

Most people want peace in the world, for fighting and killing to stop, but you can't even have peace in a sporting event. And I bet most of the fans were on their feet cheering on the fight. Anger management! Getting hit by a pitch, hard check in hockey, etc are part of the game. Grow up you over paid athletes and set a better example for our children. Our children are learning from you it's okay to fight in school or playground to resolve an issue. I wonder if Greinke could file an assault charge with the local police. This would certainly be the case in a bar fight, but what's the difference. Oh, it's part of the game!

Quentin apparently thought Greinke hit him on purpose(for the 3rd time ??) and stated his case. He also, apparently did not like Greinke's answer to his question/accusation and decided to invoke some physical punishment of his own on Greinke. I have seen pitchers plunk guys before in a tight ballgame(especially if 1st base is open) and they don't want to throw a cookie in that situation. Ball four or beaning the batter still puts them on 1st and some pitchers will use that opportunity to try to send a message. Apparently, Quentin did not like the message and let Greinke know. Greinke would have been wise to apoligise or say nothing in that situation, so as not to escalate things. At least Greinke was smart enough to use his left shoulder as he should be back in about 4 weeks instead of 6 weeks if it was his rt. shoulder(throwing arm). Keep in mind that 90-95 mph fastballs that are shoulder high can easily get a batter in the head when the batter tries to duck out of the way. One serious beaning to the head can be career ending and/or life threatening. Pitchers need to be held accountable for their work. Simple as that !
