A Detroit TV station posted a hilarious video of one of the two combatants (Rod Allen). Scroll down the page a bit. Years ago, while playing in Japan, he chased a pitcher all over the field after he got plunked.

The Benny Hill music was a nice touch.

That Benny Hill music really tied the video together, did it not? Just sorry I don't know how to say douchebag in Japanese.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

Why hasn't B&W posted about the Mets hammering the final nail into the Philies' coffin? I expected that post around 6 AM.

I was trying to turn over a new leaf and be gracious.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

The Orioles blew past the 100 mark and kept right on going - 110 in their sites.

The only questions still open

- will they have a 20 game loser for an ace (Bundy)?
- will Davis top the .179 mark for all time low BA
- will current team HR and RBI leader - Manny Machado - hold onto to those honors for rest of year
Wendall : That's very linear Sheriff
Ed Tom : Age will flatten a man Wendall

He made a nice run at it by losing his last 5 decisions with a 9.09 ERA, but I don't think he has enough starts left to reach 20.

Fair point .

Hey Phillies fans - remember when all you needed to continue your post season dreams was beat the Mets - for a change?

The Red Sox and Yankees are declaring Shennanigans! wrt to the Indians acquistion of Josh Donaldson.

Seems like BS to me, too. I liked the line "I guess he got reinjured on the plane". It seems very fishy to me.

It's absolutely fishy, but they'll probably get away with it. You're not supposed to put injured players on waivers, but apparently Donaldson was willing to "declare" himself not injured in order to make the trade happen.
