Basebrawl Includes Actual Punches in Mariners-Angels: There was a barn burner of a brawl today in the Mariners-Angels game. Jesse Winker of the Marines was hit by a pitch, didn't like what he was hearing from the Angels bench and dove into the team throwing punches.

That was quite a kerfuffle.

In Bavaria that's known as a winkerplunkenschlagerei.

I just want the Mariners to be relevant. Please roster a title contender and get to the Series while I'm still competent enough to salute the achievement.

Lord! Looks like someone in this thread could use a visit from Jesse Winker

No kidding. I'd throw a few haymakers myself unless one of you held me back.

My favorite part of a basebrawl is when the old veterans pick a dance partner on the other team and hold each other so neither one has to fight.

A total of 12 people got suspensions because of this fracas. The biggest suspension being levied on the Angels' manager, Phil Nevin, at 10 games

There will eventually be more individuals affected by the brawl than people who still care about the sport.

Archie Bradley is described as "Heavily bearded Bradley" by an unnamed AP reporter in the linked story. Is this intended to suggest that the beard was so weighty it threw off his balance?
