So you want Hitchcock to go?

I don't, but I'm hearing it's probable he won't be back (not really sure how I feel about that, probably depends on who gets hired if he goes). I'm more thinking a roster shakeup. I think Oshie's probably going to be on the trade block. Some of the other older guys will probably be available at the right price.

I love this Blues team, but when you lose first round three straight years it's time for a shake-up. Could make for a pretty bittersweet offseason.

That is pretty sweet. Would wear on a shirt

baseball talk: how great is our bullpen? It's substantially better than last years and thats amazeballs.

Wade Davis is a machine that throws baseballs that appear to be unhittable. Isn't that something?

The bullpen is amazing and Hoch isn't even back yet. It's just unheard of that arguably baseball's best closer can go on the DL and the bullpen doesn't miss a beat.

Samardzija and Volquez went too far. They should both get a suspension.

This. Those are the two guys that did anything suspension worthy. I actually would love it if the Commish's office came out and said "We're tacking a couple extra games on Edinson's suspension because his punch was embarrassingly bad."

I wouldn't love that because he's been our best starter so far. I think 6 games would be enough.

5 is a pretty standard number for a starting pitcher because it means one start. So if they said 5 for throwing a punch, 2 more for throwing a horrible punch I'd enjoy that.

MLB secretly likes this. It's like Happy Gilmore, it's great for the sport. More eyes on tv sets.

MLB loves the crap out of this.

Probably luked, but the MLB Network breakdown is really good: http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/7417714/v86806783/?source=MLB&c_id=mlb&tcid=facebook_embedded_player

I really think the worst part is now this narrative about the Royals that the media will want to run with as opposed to the one that the Royals are a really good team. Look at tonight, the initial reaction is that Ventura is a hot head and starting stuff, but the more everyone looks at it Ventura is still a hot head, but it looks more like Eaton instigated things. Throw in that Shark was probably the biggest culprit in the brawl getting to the level it was and the White Sox should have looked like the bigger "bad boys" in this but the narrative has already been written and the media ran with it.

I mean, I may not be the wordsmith Harold is but...

It seems like Moose getting plunked in the head was meant to get Ventura to retaliate and booted. I'm concerned that kind of thinking is going to get a Royal batter hurt. It would be nice if the umps did some no-warning ejections of opposing team pitchers.

I think Sale hitting Moose was completely unintentional. I don't think he even wanted to go inside on that pitch. I tend to judge intent on catcher reaction to the pitch. On the Sale pitch Flowers was completely crossed up. Part of the reason I think Kazmir may have intentionally hit Cain the other day is their catcher barely moved.

Not that it's really a bad thing that the Royals have this bad boy rep, but we're definitely going to get some ejections and suspensions this season that aren't really warrented based on the way other teams are treated.

well true or not, that's a retarded point to be defending ventura on.  why was ventura staring him down to start with?  that's not even worth my time watching to see if it happened or not.

I wouldn't care if he did straight stare him down, his edge part of why he's so great, but I don't think it was all like that in this case. Watching it full speed I really think Ventura, when he first fielded the ball, though he'd just run tag Eaton, then realized where he was and who the runner was and decided against it. By then Eaton's jawing at him.

Watched the video again and it's pretty obvious Eaton said something first

Eaton thought Yordano quick pitched him earlier in the AB and yelled something.

where is the video for this?  there's no evidence for it on the mlb brawl vid.

not saying it didn't happen, just the camera isn't on eaton until after ventura yells at him.

Watch the video close. Ventura fields the ball, stares down Eaton and Eaton turns and says something, then we see Ventur's "eff you"

a lot depends on winning.  if the royals had lost a tight game today with 14 players ejected, i'd be shaking my damn head.  but since they won, i'm like, my only regret is that herrera didn't break that fuckshit's ribs.

i'm trying to reserve judgement until a)  i see if we win, and b) i see replays (heard on white sox radio so far).  but if their broadcast was remotely accurate, ventura sounds like a rough ridin' weirdo.  does he think batters are trying to hit him when they hit it back up the middle?

Baseball umps are pretty snobby about not being proved wrong in general. It's got to be obvious or they're probably not changing the call. Even then they're going to try to find a way around it.

It was all chill until Shark decided to bum rush

https://vine.co/v/ea9tFEA7LXO

Shark is definitely a piece in all this. Cain came out of the scum with his jersey pulled over his head and it looked like he had something to do with that too.

would've been hilarious if Frasor had stared down that guy on the comebacker

Frasor joining the list of bad boys would be increadibly hilarious.

I forgot Smardzija went to Notre Dame. What a tool.

Yea, I have no doubt he is a huge doucher

ROYALS LEADING MLB IN EJECTIONS
Including the 3 tonight, the Royals have 9 ejections this season -- all in the last 6 games. The other 29 teams have combined for just 16. Follow live

Skewed by horrible game managing by umps but still lolz

So Eaton may have said something first?

Highly unlikely. Yordano was just being a stud again.

Ryan and Hud where hinting you could lip read him saying something they couldn't repeat on air before Ourdano said his thing they couldn't say on air

Prediction = Cain - 3 game suspension, Ventura 5 game.

Teams know to get into Ace's head.

If that happens Sharks suspension better match. He did more to continue the altercation than anyone.
