Re: Fight revisited
There is really no question that Carpenter at least threw gas on the fire last August by verbally escalating the situation. Words have consequences, and it always amazes me that when people provoke a fight, that they think they have the right to whine about getting hurt.
Baseball brawls, or brawls of any sort, can easily cascade out of control. If I were the Commisioner (which everyone should be glad I'm not...) I would have hammered those who did what Carpenter did to keep things going as much or more than Cueto or Phillips or Baker.
But we are beating a dead horse here....aren't we?
