The funniest part of that whole thing up there, by the way, is that Puig - the guy you see at the end being held back for a long time and eventually yelling at his teammates for not fighting enough along with him - he just got traded to Cleveland tonight and didn't know it at the time of that brawl, heh.

It looks more like someone who should be suspended from the game for a long time to me.

Wow. Puig was a pretty darned good ball player with the Dodgers for quite a while, though his fielding percentage had slipped a bit last season. His trade to the Reds was a bit of a shocker for me. But now, he's been traded again, in mid-season, to the Indians? Was his performance with Cincinnati that bad?

He was part of a three-way trade; the Padres were the other team. In exchange for Puig, the Reds are getting Trevor Bauer from Cleveland, who isn't bad at all for a team like the Reds to be getting (although he's a bit of a hot-head). Apparently they felt it was worth it. Cleveland really made out though, they not only got Puig from the Reds but also a heavy bat from the Padres, along with a newish pitcher.

There will likely be several suspensions. One of them, I expect maybe the biggest one, will be the Reds manager who had already been ejected from the game earlier, but came out of the clubhouse to participate in the brawl.

Also Puig, who will prolly have to sit out his first game or two as an Indian.

Here's a breakdown of the major participants. There's some lip-reading, including foul language in it, so be warned:

"Accidentally"

Out of curiosity, since the ball never crossed the plate, is that a ball? Or is there a pass interference rule in baseball?

Astros going to the World Series again, after tipping over NY in game 6. This is the second time Houston has ever made it - first time was in 2017.


This is also the first time since the 1910's apparently that the New York Yankees have gone the entire decade without winning the ALCS at least once. Which doesn't bother me, lol.

Houston will be playing first-time NL champions Washington Nationals, who swept the Cards last week.

With the Nationals' pennant, the only current MLB team that has never made it to the World Series at least once is the Seattle Mariners.
