Ok, it hasn’t happened this year. but a friend of mine made a good observation:
I’m worried because the Sox and Rays have bad blood dating back to Pedro Martinez plunking Gerald Williams during the 2000 season — although nearly every guy from that game is gone, bad feelings inexplicably remain, almost like the Bloods and the Crips when nobody knows exactly what started the fight in the first place, just that they’re supposed to hate the other guys. And I mention this only because you do NOT want to get in a bench-clearing brawl with the 2007. Dukes alone would turn into Sly Stallone during the last 15 minutes of “Cobra.” Anyway, I suggest Terry Francona calls the Rays tomorrow and offers an immediate truce. Just trust me on this.)
Seriously, someone please please get into a brawl with the Devil Rays. come one!
