I'm not really surprised that Greinke was involved in this. I have my popcorn out. Time to watch this thing!

Two things that I picked up from the SportsCenter highlights this morning:

1. Mark McGwire and Matt Williams grabbing a hold of each other's warmups and looking like they were ready to go.

2. LA's million-dollar pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, throwing punches. That would not be cool to have your best pitcher on the DL for breaking his hand in a fight.

Lastly, not surprised Greinke was involved in this "mess" as Vin Scully called it.

I just watched it. Ian Kennedy should miss 2 starts. If your going to hit a batter, hitting 2 in the head is totally uncalled for.

As for during the brawl Mark McGuire should be suspended 2 games and fined $80,000. He's supposed to be a coach breaking up a fight, not an out of control steroid monster picking fights. Don Mattingly should be suspended 2 games and $50,000 for once again not being under control and going after people instead of breaking up the fights. I know he's seen 2 of his starters get hit in the head but leave the out of control anger to the players.

Ian Kennedy is a piece of **** for throwing right at Puig's face and hitting him square in the nose. What a ****. Guys REALLY need to get suspended long term for that kind of ****. We are talking about peoples careers and lives at stake.

Kennedy should be suspended for throwing at the head, twice. That's beyond stupid and beyond dangerous.

That pitch that hit Puig, I don't personally think it was intentional. The movement on that pitch was pretty sick, it looked like a 2-seamer that got away

Not the case on the one up and in to Greinke.

McGwire looked good on the fight, but rumors circulating he was be DQ'd and have to give back his percentage of purse, failed the post-fight drug test....

Mattingley said if you can't control your pitches inside, don't throw inside. Anytime you throw at someone's head, you deserve what's coming to you.

Maybe we can have him teach Flowers this trick so we can unload the guy, or at least get a little entertainment out of him. Clearly the steroids he took aren't having the same effect.

Much more recently than Big Mac did, that's for sure.

Mattingly was no better. I always thought he and Trammell were friends, yet Mattingly tried to beat the **** out of him.

Juan Uribe was one of the first Dodgers to come to Greinke's defense after he was drilled in the head. Matt Williams looked like he would have killed McGwire if they would have fought.
