Wow, it’s only spring

by thoughtfulconservative

From The Heater, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays blog,

So much for any issues between the Rays and Yanks being “put to bed.”The Rays-Yankees spring training game Wednesday took a wild turn in the top of the second, when Yankees 1B Shelley Duncan slid spikes-high into Rays 2B Akinori Iwamura while trying to stretch a single into a double. Duncan[‘]s hard slide prompted a quick ejection, and sparked the benches to clear.

Duncan, if you remember, had made some veiled threats earlier this week that there would be more intensity in today’s game following the much-publicized home plate collision Saturday by Rays INF Elliot Johnson. The Rays felt it was just a hard play. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said it was “uncalled for” during a spring training game.

Just think what it will be like when the regular season starts.


This is why we hate the Yankees.

  1. Always remember to keep your eye on the balls.

  2. It’s a good thing they wear protection, eh?
