It was being mentioned that Kennedy was having control issues; then the pitch to Grienke pretty much erased all concerns.

Lol, control issues. Cracks me up when people blame it on that. Ian Kennedy is a grown ass man who has been pitching for years. He is in the MLB for a reason. I understand being outside the strike zone, but at someone's head is intentional in my opinion

sometimes it's an accident sometimes it's on purpose you can pretty much tell by the situation

and sometimes it's even potato

Was someone on first? It seems like that was a pickoff move but he forgot to turn to first base, lol was probably thinking about Kate Upton naked

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.

Greinke had no choice but to retaliate. Their young star took a pitch off his face and Greinke would have lost the respect of every teammate on his team if he didnt do something about it. He did it the right way by hitting Montero in a spot that would not injure him.

The blame on this fight rests on Ian Kennedy. It was over but he decided to go head hunting with his pitch to Greinke.

Howell should be more for haymaking.

Puig unscathed?

Matt Williams should get one because he had his hand on McGwire's jersey

Grienke no suspension?

Turner Ward not even one game!

why should matt williams be suspended?


and why did hinske get 5 games while uribe got none? belisario 1 game? puig none? what a f**k!

as they said it.

Starter Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41): "So if you throw punches when the benches clear, you get fined. You get sucker punched, you get suspended five games. Makes sense #not"

Starter Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32): "Hinske's had the soup and ended up paying for someone else's surf & turf"

Relief pitcher Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler): "It's a joke that throwing at someone is viewed as so much worse than running off the bench, tackling people, and throwing haymakers."

not realistically. my dad always tries to say if anyone comes out of the dugout they get a 30 game suspension. i say how is that fair. it is the pitcher+catcher vs the hitter. and what happens when the other team leaves the dugout? do you really expect them to stand by and watch a 25 vs 1 beatdown? or if just the 2nd basemen gets involved and it becomes a 3v1 beatdown?
