  3. At the very least, the pitcher should've been tossed for throwing at the batter & the batter should've been tossed for taking the first swing, & I think that's what happened. As for what Peavy said, granted it was a stupid thing to say, but when it comes to baseball & you hit a home run, just keep you're mouth shut & round the bases. When a batter showboats like a Jackass, be expected to be drilled next time up. There's a right way & wrong way to play the game. But showing up the other team is only asking for trouble. Simple but fact.

  7. Lee didn't want none of that business. he started to pursue young after Giles grabbed him, but he thought twice. he was already in trouble for stopping and swinging first, so he can't use that as an excuse.

  10. Did Giles pull a Steve 'Psycho' Lyons and take his own pants down on the field?

  11. I've always thought it was such a bitch move for Derek Lee to throw the punch and then literally change course to run behind Lou Pinella. Like, if you're going to be a man, be a man. Bitch move.

  12. Derrek Lee obviously the instigator. What a bitch, probably a racist against white people. That's why he started the fight

  16. Only thing I hate about baseball is the constant intervention of fights. I would bash my own teammate's skull in if they did that bullshit. If I'm in a fight I'm finishing it or destroying anyone that gets in our way. it's f'n stupid.

  23. I remember this. There was a very under-reported rumor that Lee was upset about perceived racism. It's apparent from the video that at 11:55 Young urges Lee to take take the base. Five seconds later, Young almost certainly says "Come on, boy" but by then Lee had already thrown the punch. My guess is that Young had already called Lee a boy when telling him to hurry to first base. What's clear is that Lee had already made up his mind to hit Young when Lee approached.

    Apparently, the issue was resolved quickly, because the rumors never gained traction and nothing new came out from either team. Both teams would have wanted to avoid the racially charged drama. Lee would have likely accepted Young's personal apology. Squaring things away in this fashion would have likely avoided a longer suspension for Young, and Lee would have avoided backlash from around the league for ratting out another player to the press.

    PLAY BY PLAY:
    San Diego's catcher Rob Bowen is arguing with the ump that the ball only hit the bat. Then Lee and Young exchange a few non-emotional phrases as Lee strides to first. Then:

    Chris Young: "You okay?"
    Derrek Lee: "Yeah, I'm fine."
    Young: "Then hurry up, [he probably also says boy]"
    Lee approaches Young while saying "What?"
    Young spreads his hands apart with equal parts sheepishness and defensiveness, then says "Hey. Come on, boy, hey."

    Before Young got to "boy," Lee was already throwing the punch.

  25. Fights are fires and Zambrano was gasoline. Always a danger when a brawl started against the Cubs.

  26. If I don't want to watch mistake hitting Soriano do his silly dance after hitting my mistake onto Waveland Avenue, there's only one thing I can do about it.
    Pitch Better

  35. Not only is Lee an idiot for thinking that was intentional, he can't even connect on a sucker punch.

  36. I cant believe he went after Young. Dude is like a 7 foot tall mutant.

  37. Baseball doesn't have that many true rivalries. I don't necessarily consider this match-up a true rivalry. But these two teams have some history with each other – especially back in 1984.

  38. Giles pulls a "Steve Lyons" and pulls his pants down and tucks his jersey in. LOL

  39. You can see Lee say, "yeah, I'm alright…WHAT?!", then BOOM! Young must've said something to him.

  42. On purpose or not, pitchers should realized that when something like that happens that the batter will react, they may not mean that you tried to hurt them, they might just be frustrated it happened but when pitchers get off the mound and walk towards their direction and says words, even if it is apologies, like sorry man I didn't mean to hit you, the batter might be upset and say stuff like yeah right bullshit man.

    When a pitcher hits a batter they should start ON the mound, let the catcher walk forwards to get the ball to them, stay on the mound and shut your mouth, you just hit a guy, let the guy vent and take his base and it will be over after that, no reason to make comments to the guy and risk it getting worse.

    Batters have a reason to be upset, what reason does the pitcher have to be upset about? That he accidentally hit a player , just stay by yourself and try to get yourself back to normal. If you want to apologize do that after the game when people are not in the heat of the moment. If pitchers get off the mount after hitting someone and make comments/motions to the batter they should be thrown out right away and be made to miss the next game. In 90% of the cases a pitcher getting off the mound and making a comment is gonna make things go ugly.

  43. I like how ater the 1st punches were thrown Lee ran for help and Young was taken away. And Youngs kickin ass today, and Lee??? Hmm..

  44. Man D-Lee is still one of my favorite players. Even though he retired

    Reply
  45. All Chris said was "Go to first base" and Lee was being a bitch about it. And what the fuck was the home plate umpire doing talking to Bowen instead of getting in between CY and Lee
