    Has the hammer dropped yet?

    If that's what happened, Young is my favorite player ever, non-Nationals division. And he doesn't rank behind too many of them.

    How are you not supposed to be shaken for a second when a 90-plus mile per hour pitch goes near your face? That's not something you get used to.

    I've thought from the day of the fight that Young punked him out. Lee looked like a puss.

    Have two nicer guys ever had a fistfight in baseball?

    "Take your base, motherfucker" barely edges out Varitek's "We don't throw at .250 hitters" to Alex Rodriguez.

    I would love nothing more than to see a batter tackle Carlos Zambrano after a fist pump in celebration of a strike out to end an inning.

    As CZ is running off the field, the batter throws the bat to his dugout and sprints toward CZ and spearing him in the side. I'd pay good money to see that.

    Carlos looks like he has a knife in his back pocket.

    Derrick Lee is lucky he got out of the way of that punch.

    Erroneous! Erroneous on both counts!

    Nothing will ever top "We don't throw at .250 hitters."

    And after the initial punch-swapping sequence, it was obvious Lee wasn't really trying to get around the guy "holding him back" to get to Young. What a fuckin' puss.

    While these two at least threw a couple haymakers, neither was even close to landing. And most baseball fights are nothing more than a quick tackle and wrestle.

    We need to get hockey players to do a clinic for MLB on how to fight properly. The skaters know how to land blows and have a real fight.

    The baseball boys--a lot more theatrics than actual fighting.
