Gosh, I love this stuff.

 

Nolan Arenado charged the mound pretty hard after getting hit by the pitch. The pitcher wanted no part of him but there were some funny glove throws.

Yankees Red Sox brawl was the more traditional type where not much actually happened but a lot of players milling about.

And here is Jason Turbow's excellent write up on why the Yankee/Red Sox brawl happened.

That isn't playing hard, that's playing reckless.Even though that slide didn't amount to injury, Austin made his intentions incredibly clear.I typically don't condone retaliatory acts.I'll make two exceptions in this instance: the slide was meant to cause injury and he wears a Yankees uniform.Take your medicine and be done with it.  

 

Judging by his response, I hope Austin gets a "random" UA test.That sort of rage is of the doping kind.
