In last night's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke threw a 3-2 pitch in a 2-1 game that hit Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin.

On Friday night, the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants did battle, literally, at AT&T Park in San Francisco. In the top of the 6th, the Phillies had an 8-2 lead.

By now, I'm sure you've seen the video of Orioles pitcher Kevin Gregg and Boston's David Ortiz throwing punches in the Red Sox/Baltimore game on Friday night.

Check out my thoughts along with video of the brawl in Fenway Park along with other video of past baseball brawls over the past couple of years.
