    I don't recall ever pimping him but we have a surplus of average 1b who should be moved for relief pitching so I never have to see Aaron Heilman again

    Wish we would give Allen a shot though, Miranda has been doing terrible since early July while Allen is hitting 303/426/570 in AAA

    • So that fight thing was pretty god damn stupid. Gregg had already gotten run from the game for coming off the mound to Ortiz.Ortiz should have just kept himself in check. That's likely a five game suspension, even though the punches didn't connect.

      But really, this is cute and all Orioles. You make a big huff because your crap defense allowed eight runs to score in the first and then try to play it off like you're the Angels of Baseball justice. Gregg was clearly throwing WAAAY inside to Ortiz too, anyone could see it. If I'm an O's fan dealing with a ****** team that's been run poorly for this many years, you gotta love a guy like Buck. But throwing at people for no god damn reason and trying to swing it as "oh we were trying to compete" is complete crap. No reason for anyone to get hurt in garbage time, especially when no one on the Sox did anything to rub it in or particularly unsportsmanlike. It would be different if this was a Manny admiring his shot situation or something of that, but these were meaningless innings.

      The funny part is Gregg went on the claim that it's the best way to get Ortiz out....which might have been true six years ago, but this year he's clobbering balls inside according to all charts. He's probably bullshitting due to the fact he didn't have any real good reason to try to hit Ortiz, but if he's not he's certainly not doing his due diligence on how to get the hitters he'll be facing out, especially ones he'll be facing multiple times within the division.

      EDIT:
      The one good thing from that is we get the best thing John Lackey has done in a Red Sox uniform; tossed a bunch of guys off Scutaro and basically was willing to take the entire team on.

        #Blue Jays' Frank Francisco makes real class move. Asks reporters if they want to talk to him. They say yes and he tells them to f*** off.
        What a troll.

        • The ump should have tossed him after he walked towards Gregg the first time.

            By the letter of the law, Gregg should have been tossed when he left the mound, which was when Ortiz was yelling.

            • I won't disagree with that.

              At the :20 second mark of that video, they should have both been tossed, although, by letter of the law (Rule 9.04a1), it is the ump's discretion.

                            I think this calls for an HBO special.
