Fallout From The Fight
By Seth Everett
I’ve been on the radio a lot in the last 24 hours since the bench-clearing brawl between the Giants and Phillies.
This morning on WIP, I interviewed one of my dearest friends. Former big leaguer Darryl Hamilton played 13 years for the Brewers, Giants, Rockies, Mets, and Rangers.
He also spent the last four years in the MLB offices handling on-field operations, specifically players fines & suspensions. While I put most of the blame on Giants catcher Eli Whiteside, Darryl tells me how MLB would look at Shane Victorino, and how he deserves a lion’s share of the blame.
Darryl and I host a show on iTunes called “Stayin’ Hot.” This interview was not to promote that show but more to give an honest MLB interpretation on what was a really ugly incident.
