    Re: Zack Greineke broke his collarbone

    One of fantasy teams has Kemp Greinke and Quentin. Why can't teammates get along?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Pretty weak excuse to charge the mound. But Greinke always seemed really smarmy to me anyway so maybe I'll just chalk it up to that.

    While it is unfortunate Greinke got hurt, and typically I would be in the boat of if a player hurts another player due to doing something illegal he should sit out until that players return (such as a dirty intentional foul in basketball that hurts the other player), Greinke didn't attempt to protect himself, instead he lowered his shoulder into a charging bull. Chalk this one up to Greinke himself for the most part. Quentin should get the usual suspension for his act of charging the mound.

    Cueto gave him a concussion. The 7th or whatever number it was concussion Cueto gave him had just as much of a part in ending his career as the previous 6. He didn't go from completely healthy to career ended due to that brawl.

    If I was on the Dodgers pitching staff I already would know what I am going to do the next time Quentin comes to bat when I am pitching. I might even recommend to Mattingly that he have someone warming up in the bullpen because Quentin will probably be the last batter I face in that game.

    Greinke needs to learn the "side step". If he were a bull fighter, he'd be gored.

    The bseball brawl? The dumbest thing in baseball and maybe all sports.

    ESPN is saying it's the third time he has been plunked by Greinke... so maybe there is a history there!

    Greinke is making $21 million this year from the Dodgers. Of course, he will still get paid even though injured. It's the Dodgers team that takes the financial hit.

    Is there ever a point where the Dodgers go after Quentin or the Padres legally?

    That looks on Greinke to me.

    That pitch wasn't close, looks like he ran his mouth, and then he lowered his shoulder to defend himself against a 240 pound man running at him.

    Quentin's been hit 120 times and never done anything. That pitch was up and in, he took a step and it appears Greinke said something.

    With the history, he probably should have kept his mouth shut.

    But really, he lowered his shoulder. Dumb.

    Yeah, I hope it's Kershaw who plunks him and gets suspended.

    That would be brilliant! Not.

    Someone needs to put some blame on AJ Ellis.

    Baseball brawls = football players throwing punches with helmets on.
