Carlos Silva began throwing inside on Adam Dunn to ignite the scrum. A warning was issued on a inside toss at Dunn's waist, but Silva threw behind the batter on the very next pitch. Dunn started slowly towards the mound at first, but then made a break for Silva. However, catcher Mike Lieberthal tackled Dunn by the ankles and the big outfielder fell to the ground. Silva took swings (cheap shots) at the fallen Dunn as both benches emptied and a brawl ensued.
(2) Traded to Minnesota from Philadelphia in part for Eric Milton. Helped start the ball rolling for Milton to end up in a Cincinnati uniform for 3 years and $27 million.
Hard to forgive (1). Not really his fault or doing on (2), but (1) makes it easier to find fault for the guy on (2).
I thought that was Vicente Padilla.. I stand corrected.. I don't want him..
