Coco Crisp is a piece of --

If anyone deserves to be held down and beaten it's Coco Crisp.

He had that coming in a big way, Coco is what medicore d-bags ascribe to be. Call him a d-bag role model.

I would have to love to see James Shields land that haymaker. But, it looks like Coco got knocked around pretty good on the bottom of the pile so I can live with it. :clap3:

Gotta love watching the Ray's do everyone else's dirty work though. Can anyone think of two other MLB teams that wanna have a cage match more that the Red Sox & Rays? :epic: They are building quite the rivalry. :pain:

Yeah, that was a little disturbing. I have no idea what the heck he thought he was doing. Talk about tweaking out. Totally uncalled for, and it's doubly stupid because now he's going to be sitting on his butt with a nice long suspension while they really need him because Ellsbury's now hurt.

Those Rays players that were hitting him while he was pinned on the ground by another Rays player were all class, though. Nothing makes you a bigger man than punching a guy while he's being held down. :rolleyes:

In general, a pathetic display all around. Fights are exciting for the fans, but really, watching adults behave that way is pretty embarrassing.

Class or not, Crisp got what he deserved!

Maddon was jawing at Crisp before the fracas during a pitching change. You gotta think whatever Maddon said to Crisp, and it probably wasn't too friendly, it made his players think they had the green light to open up a can of whoopa on Crisp if things got sporty. You don't often see a manager jawing an opposing player.

Boy did a bunch of guys go after Crisp when he went after Shields! If I'm a player I'm thinking twice about charging the mound when the Rays are in town. These boys will make you pay.

(My enjoyment of baseball brawls makes me feel dirty and childish but I can't help it.)

For the record, THAT was the day before when Crisp took out the 2b. That was not last night.

Watch his postgame interview. I'll post it if I find, but if you think you hate him now just wait until after you watch that.

Just saw it...the way he talks about it...it's stomach turning. Planning out how he was going to charge the mound "faking towards first to get Navarro off my back.." etc.

D-baggery doesn't quite do Crisp justice.

I have a feeling that Gomes (and maybe Crawford) may get the longest suspension out of this.

My bet is that Crisp gets the longest suspension out of anyone out there mainly b/c he started it and for treating the whole thing as a big joke in his post game comments. Who actually explains their technique in charging the mound? The guy just doesn't get it.

Of the Rays, my bet is that Gomes and Crawford get suspended the longest. Iwamura next b/c he came in and threw a punch. I hope Navarro doesn't b/c he was just tackling Crisp to get him away from Shields. Shields will likely be suspended at least for a start, maybe more b/c of the attempted haymaker.

He better! He made a manageable situation worse, than BRAGGED about it.

And was Iwamura throwing real punches, or throwing punches with his glove hand? You never see any good angles of it, and the still picture you can see he's hitting Crisp with his glove.

I think you've given a pretty solid guess here. Gomes and Crawford should get nailed for piling on and hitting a guy who couldn't defend himself.

I wish there was some way for MLB to institute a rule where it is an automatic suspension if you leave the bench, a la the NBA. If they all leave the bench, they are all suspended, make the team fill in with minor leaguers for a game if necessary.

So if someone charges the mound it is 1 (+ whoever is on base) v 9?

What should have happen is Francona should have said Coco your going to get hit. Take it like a man and lets get this thing past us.

They'll get suspensions b/c they were throwing punches, but Crisp chose his fate. I can't blame them for sticking up for their teammates.

I have to wonder if he actually did, but Crisp just didn't care. I mean...just listening to that post game interview...he knew he was going to get hit, and he had it planned on what he was going to do.

I agree that, while entertaining, the piling on was a bit much, but I have to say, I'm glad Iwamura was taking shots.

Whether they were good punches or just "girlie punches" they're still going to be punches in MLB's eyes. But they won't be treated like Gomes/Crawford type punches. Just a hunch.

    • The pitcher …the guys here are overvaluing prospects. Id honestly trade quite a lot if it got us a ring.
    • Yeah, also interested to hear some thoughts on the draft from people!
    • Bradish was shut down and then did a full rehab before he started pitching again. Anyway go ahead and believe what you are going to believe, I'm not going to try and convince you, but there are some facts you are leaving out.
    • And how many of those teams rotations would you trade for the one that we have currently? In just about any/every projected playoff matchup save for the Guardians and maybe the Twins, the other team has the matchup advantage in the series. IMO those are long odds when trying to be successful in multiple rounds of the playoffs in October. Maybe you are comfortable with that? I am not.
    • I doubt Elias would be much moved to act a week before the deadline when asks by Sellers still skew high but I guess it is worth noting the Orioles play their Marlins series July 23-25. Who Tanner Scott and AJ Puk and Burch Smith and Vinny Nittoli play for in any given 3-game series probably doesn't make a game of difference, and the division probably won't come down to 1 game.  
    • Remember Bradish pitched for 3 months with a torn UCL.  And pitched well.  Until he couldn't.  Just because a tear happens doesn't mean it will curtail you right away.   I saw FB's face and body language during that game.  Something was off.    I can speak of this from personal experience.  I have a torn UCL and a bone chip the size of a quarter in my right elbow, and have had it for years.  Back from when I first got it looked at 20 years ago.   I just lived with the pain.  Sometimes up to 8 tylenol a day.   It always hurts and it wasn't until I was bowling one specific shot a few years ago and it completely blew out that I had to go to a orthopedist for it.   I just rested it for 3 months and have done nothing overhand as far as sports and working out since.  Anytime I throw overhand?  It kills. No way I could throw a baseball 80 times a game.  My arm would probably fall off.    The elbow really controls your overhand throws.  Underhand and side arm is not nearly as bad. 
    • How many teams won the trade deadline with a big time acquisitions and then won the championship.   2023 Rangers traded for rental Montgomery a solid mid rotation guy and rental Chapman nice bullpen piece. 2022 Astros traded for Trey Mancini 2021 Braves traded for Solor, Rosario, and Duvall.   2020 Covid year with weird deadline 2019 Nats traded for Daniel Hudson and Roenilis Ellis  2018 Red Sox traded for Andrew Cashner  2017 Astros traded for Justin Verlander which was a great pickup and changed there team when he bounced back but the trade itself was for very little in terms of prospects and more salary dump for rebuilding Tigers.    2016 Cubs trade for Chapman and Mike Montgomery.   2015 Royals traded for Johnny Cueto a veteran rental starter coming off all star season but pitched to a 4.86 ERA for Royals .  Also traded for Ben Zobrist.   2014 Giants traded for Jake Peavy as a rental.
