they need to do something
id be pissed if the cardinals had a huge player get hurt over some stupid brawl...ALL because some idiot wants to throw at a guys head
Fights dont happen often enough to change anything. In this day and age of free agency, the players are mostly all buddies. I think fights used to be way more common in the 50's-80's. Its too bad they dont keep track of that kind of thing...
The problem with last night was that Kennedy threw at Greinke's head. Otherwise it wouldve been a normal shoving match.
Although Kennedy started it by hitting Puig, i think the Dodgers instigated the whole thing by retaliating. You can clearly see Kennedy is upset after he hit Puig. It wasnt intentional at all. the Dodgers decided it needed to be escalated the next inning.
