Ian Kennedy is apparently jealous of the NBA because he made headlines the same night the San Antonio Spurs blew out the Miami Heat in 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals. Kennedy beaned Los Angeles Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig in the face and then pegged Dodgers ace Zack Greinke in the shoulder, sparking a bench-clearing brawl.
Now Greinke isn’t innocent here — he hit Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back before getting beaned himself, so both teams were at fault in this one. But would think Greinke learned his lesson when San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin roughed him up and broke his collarbone the last time he beaned a batter.
Is it just me or are brawls in getting out of hand? It seems like we see a WWE free-for-all once a week now. And with these two teams opening the 2014 MLB season in Australia, we might see another brawl, Land Down Under-style. Heck, a kangaroo might jump in for all we know. With all the absolutely ridiculous “brawling” in pro baseball lately, nothing would surprise us anymore.
