Last night’s baseball game between the Padres and the Dodgers got out of hand when Dodgers’ pitcher Zack Greinke hit Padres’ batter Carlos Quentin. This led to a bench clearing brawl that left Greinke with a fractured collar bone.
No matter how you spin it, Quentin is in the wrong. The back of Quentin’s baseball card is not exciting anyone and he needs to play his position in the world of baseball. In his 8 year career he is a .253 hitter, he should feel honored that Greinke even paid enough attention to hit him!
But because Quentin believes he is better than he is and that Greinke gives a flying f¥€k about who he is; he felt the need to charge the mound after being hit with a pitch. In defending his .253 batting avg career Quentin fractured the collar bone of Greinke.
As it stands now Greinke will be out indefinitely with a broken collar bone. Meanwhile Quentin MAY get a 5 game suspension for charging the mound, hardly fair for the Dodgers.
I agree with Dodgers’ manager Don Mattingly, Carlos Quentin should have the sit out however long it takes Greinke to recover from the fractured collar bone. Let’s see if MLB and Bud Selig will do the right thing!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
