OMG - MLB investigating an incident between Reds & Jints before the game even started! Apparently Tommy Pham was involved.

I could not believe when I heard the reason behind this! It had to do with a beef they had over fantasy football! They were in the same league and Pham said Joc was cheating based on its rules.

Not even anything baseball-related!

I almost fell off my seat laughing when I first heard that--I thought it was a joke!

And Tommy Pham has been suspended for three games, too.

Oh, geez, this has gotten so comical. Pham has blasted Mike Trout as being a horrible commissioner of that league. I think I've heard more about this crap than I care to!

Since I don't follow AL teams quite so closely I didn't remember this history (linked here) about the Mariners-Astros that boiled over in Houston last night. Worth commenting on when you see our boy Ty France was hit by a pitch that led to it.

There was quite a brouhaha going on in Anaheim today between the Angels and Mariners! Acting manager Phil Nevin was ejected.

This one has taken on a life of its own. And now, 12 suspensions have been handed down.

The Red Sox-Blue Jays game yesterday had a little skirmish although it was tame compared to the Angels on Sunday! Another that started with a HBP. Article from mlb.com
