    WTF? Sliding into secod with your spikes in a guys crotch. Isn't Shelley Duncan the same @$$bag that signed a kids ball "Red Sox Suck" last season?

    Not that I'd ever defend the Yankees, but what started this was a Rays player running over the Yanks catcher (and breaking his wrist) in an earlier game. Girardi didn't think that kind of a play belonged in a spring training game (I'm not sure if I agree or not on this), and he was pissed afterward. Looks like Duncan wanted to be the hero..

    It was just a rookie for the Rays trying to prove that he should make the team, and we all know coaches tell players to go hard all the time. I don't think they wanted him going that hard in ST, but as I said he was just trying to prove himself.

    I don't have a problem with what either team has done.

    Some dude on Tampa ran over Francisco Cervelli, a cather for the Yanks, a few days ago, and broke his wrist. The Yanks weren't to happy since it was a meaningless Spring Training game. In sticking up for a teammate, obviously Duncan did what he did. I guess when Trot Nixon tosses a bat at a pitcher, it's a different story. This is baseball. I think running a catcher over in ST is a bit much since the games don't matter, but that's baseball. At the same time, sticking up for your teammate is too.

    The difference is running over a catcher is part of the game, putting your spikes in a guys crotch isn't. I understand it's ST, but as stated by patsfanofNC12 he was trying to prove himself. Should he have gone a little easier? Sure, but he is not obligated to. I can understand retribution for intentionally hitting a batter or something like that, but this was ridiculous.
