Big Papi vs. Kevin Gregg Brawl



During last nights Red Sox – Orioles game, the action heated up, Big Papi attacked pitcher Kevin Gregg who was repeatedly throws pitches at him! The benches erupted, and David Ortiz AKA Big Papi will face fine and suspension! The Red Sox were up 10-3 in the eighth inning, when Gregg started working Ortiz. Gregg pitched him inside three times almost got hit on the third pitch. Ortiz resisted but showed sweats of aggravation. On the next pitch, Ortiz flew out to center. As he hit the pitch Gregg kept walking towards him and taunting him. Ortiz bee-lined to Gregg, and started blasting! I believe in this situation you have to give Gregg the same penalty at least as Ortiz for provoking the fight (with his team down 10-3 late). Check out the video! (at 1 min mark)

When Big Papi got home from the game, ”I didn’t feel good about how that thing happened,” Ortiz said. ”I apologize to everyone for the situation. I have a lot of friends on that ballclub. Even to Gregg. I don’t really know him but he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy that acts like that. I’m not happy about it. That’s not what people come to see.”

”I think you show them that we’re not backing down. We’re not scared of them – them and their $180 million payroll,” Gregg said. ”We have just as much right to play the game here and we’re going to do everything we can to win.” – foxsports
