Benches Clear in Seattle

Richie Sexson showed very bad form tonight, when Kason Gabbard threw a head-high pitch in the bottom of the fourth. Sexson took off his helmet, charged Gabbard, threw his helmet at him and jumped on him. Gerald Laird was right behind Sexson, though and tackled him.

The stupid thing is that the pitch was nowhere close to Sexson. It was over the plate, if not slightly outside. Hernandez had hit Kinsler in the last inning, after Kinsler hit a big fly off of him on the previous at bat. Sexson needs to grow up. I'm sorry the Mariners are in last place. Too bad. The pitch wasn't retaliatory. It wasn't even a "brush-back." The idiot Seattle tv announcers said "There's no doubt it was on purpose..." What? I guess Gabbard is such a bad aim that he can't throw a brush-back pitch??

The umps were fair, though. Sexson was apparently the only player ejected. After that display of childishness, Sexson should be suspended for a few games. Sexson, go sit in the corner and THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU DID!!! Bahahahaha!!!

I'm going to try to link the video. Oh, yeah...the Rangers are ahead 4-0 in the top of the fifth.

Ok...the link I had didn't just linked to the "gameday" page for the game. I'll find it and get it in here later, when it gets posted on the website.

In other news, we celebrate as Beckett and Co. were back to normal tonight, soundly handling the Tigers 5-1 to win the series 3-1. Have I mentioned that S.I. picked the Tigers to win the World Series this year?? I know, I know...I just can't let it go, you know. I even saved the issue that has the predictions in it so I can look at it at the end of the season and laugh.

I watched the start of that game. Big Gab fan. I couldn't believe that! Even if it was high, over the plate is the pitcher's rightful territory! Not that the Mariners didn't deserve a brush-back at the very least, considering they had already been plunked twice by King Felix. Wonder what he thought he had the right to run his mouth about anyway! Funniest moment though was MILTON BRADLEY carrying Laird away. LOL
