The Braves' Edgar Renteria just got drilled by Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly. The home plate umpire then ejected Lilly and both teams met on the field, but nothing happened. The night before, Tim Hudson beaned Alfonso Soriano. Warnings were issued, but Hudson was not ejected then.

EDIT: And on a steal at second, Renteria just knocked over the Cubs' shortstop. Intense.

I don't get why Lilly was ejected, IMO that was a bad call there.

But this is going to be a good game.

That ejection was even worse than Buehrle getting tossed in July 2005 against the Orioles.

Well he was throwing at his head. That's a no-no no matter what.

Why wasn't Renteria ejected for punching Fontenot in the face on the steal attempt which was clearly intentional. What a *****.

That was not a punch at all. Not even close.

A punch involves a closed fist, not a forearm.

I never said it wasn't intentional, just that it was not a punch. There is a big difference. Going in with forearms up is akin to going in with spikes up. Both used to be considered OK for revenge in the type of situation that happened in this game, but since MLB wussified things, it is frowned upon.

Depends. Maybe the umpires warned both teams before the game, which occasionally happens. If that's the case, it's a no-brainer.

Forearm shots are legal, closed fists strikes are illegal.

Granted, I'm talking about professional wrestling, but hey.

I was just thinking what a train wreck of a game it would be if the White Sox' starter got tossed in the First Inning.......

Hell, Coop might as well take the mound. Either that, or grab the "T" from the Fundamentals deck.....

ESPN is reporting that Renteria was removed from the game with a "bruised left hand."

Any chance he threw a left with his phantom punch into second?

Braves up 5-4 on a WP, Dempster goes down for a moment, and the fans do the Chop. Willie Harris scores the run.

Masset has pitched well when he has been called upon in early innings. He relieved Buerhle in the second inning of the third game of the season, to hold the Indians and put the Sox in a position to pick up their first win. He started the White Sox's only win against the Cubs this season. There is a chance the Sox could survive losing their starterr in the first inning.
