Furious Prince Fielder is stopped at Dodgers' door
By GREG BEACHAM (AP) " 10 hours ago

LOS ANGELES " Not even Prince Fielder really knows what he might have done if a phalanx of security guards and teammates hadn't prevented the furious Milwaukee slugger from entering the Los Angeles clubhouse after a ninth-inning beaning.

And nobody is sure how the Brewers and the Dodgers will react in Wednesday's season finale after Los Angeles' impressive 17-4 victory Tuesday night degenerated into retaliation, recrimination and a regrettable charge through the Dodger Stadium tunnels by the Brewers' All-Star first baseman.

The trouble started when Manny Ramirez was hit by a pitch in the seventh while Los Angeles had a nine-run lead, but it didn't boil over until Guillermo Mota was ejected for drilling Fielder with two outs in the ninth. Dodgers catcher Russell Martin acknowledged it was a response to Chris Smith hitting Ramirez with what appeared to be a much less purposeful pitch.

wild game last night...listening to it on the Tampa Bay radio station. Red Sox are a top-notch team, but Tampa is starting to find it's game. When Bard came in in relief, the Ray's announcers despaired. The kid was unhittable...til Longoria crushed his first pitch.
Lots of melodrama til the 13th when Longoria put the Sawx to bed.

@Region Philbis,
What's gone unmentioned in all the coverage is the likelihood that Prince's actions had nothing to do with the beaning. No, I say he was still pissed about how shitty Mota pitched for the Crew last year. Seriously. That guy didn't record an out between July and August. Had he not blown so many games, C.C. wouldn't have been pitching 3 games per day at the end of the regular season, and perhaps the world would have been spared the embarrassment of watching elated Phillies fans beat their chests and peel bananas and throw poop at each other as they celebrated their championship.

@Region Philbis,
Fielder shouldn't have gone after the Dodgers. He should have taken his anger out on Milwaukee's starting rotation, which has just been brutal this year.

@joefromchicago,
It would be just terrible if Jeff Suppan happened to slip on the ice outside his home this winter and break his arm, wouldn't it?

Yes it would. The Cubs are counting on Suppan to be in Milwaukee's rotation next season.

@joefromchicago,

Yanks 13 ~ Sox 6

I watched parts of this game in between burritos and stuff. dint know about this till today, though...

"Jorge Posada painted No. 15 on his catcher’s mask to pay tribute to Thurman Munson and delivered a performance that would have delighted the former New York Yankees captain."

And Ali was there.

(munson was one of my heroes as a kid)

sorry bostonians...

@panzade,
ya know, I had that argument about Baldelli once with another a2ker.

my contention was that I dint want him on my fantasy baseball team, cuz I thought what he was best at was getting injured...





(a pox on the joker that zeroed my post...)

Hard times? We live for hard times. We relish them, we revel in them.
Youk in the OF? So what? Hell, let's play him in a different position each
game, then dress him up as Wally.

My loins remain ungirded. Comfier that way.

I don't think we're going down. Nope, not a bit of it.

But if we are, we'll go down with goddam well-positioned chairs!

Any chance of Daisuke coming back and pitching quality starts before the end of the season?
