No, not between the Dodgers and Phillies. Nothing that I’m aware of, anyway. I’m looking ahead to tomorrow night’s contest featuring these two:
James Shields will be on the mound for the Rays and Coco Crisp could be in the lineup for the Red Sox. Their dustup, which led to a blench-clearing brawl (yes, there were actually a few punches thrown, in addition to all the silly standing around) happened earlier in the season and should be ancient history. Plus, a player would be truly stupid to get tossed and suspended during a critical postseason series. But testosterone runs high at this time of year.
For those who missed it, here’s a look back at the spirited rivalry that is Rays-Red Sox. You be the judge. If Dice K comes inside to Navarro, will we have an “issue?”
