    What's up with the fight with the teammate?
    I need to get out more. Apparently the Pirates had a tussle, too? Wilson and the pitching coach?

    I thought you had some bad news about Father Murphy. Glad to see I read the thread title wrong.

    He was recently suspended for subordination, though he didn't miss a start.

    insubordination, I'd guess.

    Apparently he and Mitre got into it.

    Uniwatch says 1. the guy's a raging prick and 2. he got into the fight with Mitre over a bad button. Mitre tried to calm him down after he went ballistic on one of the clubbies.


    So, if all this is true, he'll get what's coming to him.

    Mitre's among my new favorite players. Gotta love any guy who will put a prick like Olsen in his place when he lashes out at the help.

    Dontrelle Willis called out Olson the other day. Guess it did no good:

    Yeah, insubordination. My bad.

    For the talent that guy has and as young as he is, he's got to tune the attitude down.
  11. Taser was used to subdue him and get him into custody. Nice.


    The pitcher got out of his car and sat down on a plastic chair in front of his home. When backup officers arrived and tried to arrest him, Bentolila said Olsen kicked at the officers, who used a stun gun on the 6-foot-5 pitcher.

    Olsen then failed a field sobriety test and refused an alcohol breath test, Bentolila said. A booking photo showed Olsen had two scrapes on his forehead over his right eye.
