Re: Angels/Red Sox near fight
A regular season game between two teams who really don't like each other. What's the big deal? So Beckett buzzed Abreu for calling time -- that's baseball! Although its fairly reasonable to assume that Sox fans would be rioting if their hitter was thrown at, and their manager, hitting coach, and starting cf were ejected for their troubles.
The bigger story in this game happened during the top of the 8th when Lowell and Drew bailed out Shields with some horrifying ab's.
(Dang. Caught the news on the passing of Harry Kalas a few mins ago, and it really dampens the mood. He was a true master of his craft)
