    Yeah, I know what you mean. I hated him with a passion when he was with the Indians. I laughed out loud when they showed him crying in the dugout after the final game of World Series games when the Indians lost in whatever year it was.

    I think they need to put decaf coffee in the Red Sox dugout for the next few games.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Agreed.

    If you're going to punch someone, do it right. If you do it wrong, you're not going to hurt them, you're going to mess up your hand, and you're still going to have to face the consequences of starting a fight.

    The first picture in the sequence shows that Gathright's feet are nowhere near Tavarez.

    Yes I do think he punches like a girl...but I got blamed for that too...so I didn't say anything.

    Maybe it's more clear from other angles, but...

    Gathright said Tavarez stood on his right forearm after the tag. Tavarez agreed but said he wanted to beat Gathright to the punch.

    "I saw him try to get up and I wasn't going to let him throw a punch at me right away," said Tavarez, who threw a second punch on the top of Gathright's head. "You hear about whoever throws the first punch gets the win. That's what happened."
    It was a tag-out at the plate. Why would you assume the runner's going to get up and start throwing punches?

    If he spiked him in the face, how could they tell the difference?

    Re: Tavarez/Gathright fight

    I've seen the clip a few times now and it seems pretty clear that Tavarez stepped on Gathright, then took offense when Gathright tried to push the foot off his arm and then cold-cocked the guy. I think it would be sad if Gathright had to pay a fine or serve a suspension. All he was guilty of doing was playing baseball in the vicinity of a grade A buttswipe.
