Uh, Hockey called...they said you're a bunch of pussies.

/wtf kind of "brawl" was that?
 
2013-04-12 10:00:27 AM  
Incredibly unfortunate that Greinke broke his collarbone, especially given that Quentin had no business charging the mound in that situation.

Quentin is an idiot.  Yeah, he got the count to 3-2 so he could hit you in a one-run game.
 
2013-04-12 10:04:37 AM  
oy baseball players are a bunch of pusses.
why wont they just make a rule that anyone who enters the field of play during a brawl is automatically ejected?
for that matter why don't they have replay on outs?
baseball needs to be updated.

You know, the other day when the NHL Power Rankings thread was sitting at like 30 comments, I thought, "I ought to go in there and lay a nice big threadshiat about how slow the thread was, just proves that hockey is such a boring game, why don't they watch a real sport, blah blah blah". You know, like hockey fans tend to do in damn near every basketball thread we have. But no, I decided against it, didn't want to be a troll and needlessly spread negativity. Maybe next time I won't.

Quentin's needs to get a suspension that lasts as least as long as the injury he caused to Greinke
 
2013-04-12 10:10:23 AM  
At least the guy charging the mound actually intended to cause damage, instead of the stupid "hold me back, bro!" that plagues the NBA and NFL

Canada/Mexico was a brawl.  This is two men bumping into each other followed by everyone hugging.
 
2013-04-12 10:11:49 AM  
quentin was an idiot for charging
there is history between greinke and quentin
greinke should have ignored quentin and not dropped an f-bomb on him
quentin has been hit 116 times and this is apparently only time he charged mound
so yeah, he is stupid...but he had lots of help.
 
2013-04-12 10:12:40 AM  
of all people i would expect in a fight, greinke would be last.  at least he protected himself with his left shoulder, not his throwing shoulder.  unfortunately, he broke it.
 
2013-04-12 10:15:11 AM  
That's the most boring video I've ever seen.

he gets hit a lot because he hangs his gorilla torso all over the plate.

Greinke has hit Quentin twice before this. Both came in 1 run games. Greinke must love putting this guy on base in close games
 
2013-04-12 10:23:13 AM  
They just announced Greinke's replacement in the rotation.

yup.  i alwoays love "this" situation, when the batter gets hit in when the pitcher has every incentive not to give him a free base.

i'd have to watch again, but on first view it did seem like CQ was hanging his damn elbow on the plate.  don't stand on the plate and get mad when you get dotted, jackfark.

I liked Quentin when he was on the Sox, but he is the same guy that ruined his potential MVP season in 2008 by getting injured because he punched his bat after striking out.

Freakin' exactly what I was going to say.

I have no sympathy for guys who get hit a lot because it's their own damn fault. It's perfectly possible to stand off the plate and not get hit. If the pitcher decides to plunk you in the back, then fine, it probably doesn't matter where you are, but this was a pretty clear-cut case of "Hang over the plate and sometimes you'll get hit on the elbow."

// Mark Lemke is the all-time leader in plate appearances (3,664) without ever being hit by a pitch.

Exactly. Quentin came up in 2006 and since then, only one batter has been hit more than he has (Utley). There's a reason for that, and it's not that everybody is out to get Carlos Quentin

He definitely leans his arm over the plate.  Grienke admittedly missed his spot by about two feet, but again it's hard to imagine he's trying to put the leadoff runner on in a one-run game.

In those sports, you actually get significant suspensions for fighting at all.

Sweaty Dick Punching! Grienke to sign his MMA contract with Dana White this afternoon.

I like how Quentin makes zero effort to get out of the way of the pitch, even though he'd get the same free base if he didn't get hit.
 
2013-04-12 10:45:28 AM  
I just like the way Grienke led with his shoulder when Quentin came to the mound. I'm thinking that's how he got the break.

IAmRight: I like how Quentin makes zero effort to get out of the way of the pitch, even though he'd get the same free base if he didn't get hit.


I hope that Quentin gets a nice, long suspension for this.  I also hope that Grienke doesn't get a suspension in addition to his DL visit.

I think he clearly demonstrated his ignorance of the count or even basic baseball strategy.

Yeah but he has never charged the mound before so why do it now?  He crowds the plate but is still in the batters box and the pitch that hit him was in the batters box not over the plate.
No way greinke is hitting him on purpose for sure, but he was an idiot for taunting quentin.

Dear hockey fans,

As a fellow patron of your sport, I wish to inform you that while I appreciate the fighting and physicality of our glorious endeavor, I also understand and appreciate that such overt displays of manliness and aggression translate differently in other sports. You calling them "pussies", even jokingly, looks retarded and makes me look stupid as well. So, please stop.

Sincerely,

Killer Cars.

Furthermore, the rules say you HAVE to make an effort to avoid the pitch.  That never gets called, though.

/would be a ball if you don't make an effort and it hits you out of the strike zone.

bhcompy: Quentin's needs to get a suspension that lasts as least as long as the injury he caused to Greinke


Except that you don't know for sure if Quentin is the one that caused the injury because:

1. It wasn't much of a fight.  Honestly, if Greinke is that fragile, he needs to quit playing ball and start shilling Boniva.

2. Every moron in that pile could have been the one that broke glass-boy's clavicle.  Lots of heavy guys stumbling around grappling with each other, not exactly paying close attention to where they step.

As a Giant's fan, THANK YOU Padres for taking out a valuable player on their roster. I wish you had won the game as well....but this is a very satisfactory and delicious consolation prize.

/Beat LA (in every sense of the word)
