Oh please that was not Guillen backing up his teammate. That was a selfish, pay attention to me, move.

And no, this is not me absolving Weave..he has his share of the blame in the altercation..but what Guillen did was absolutely bush league.

We saw it oppositely: I cannot agree with you to say Guillen was bush league of the year for his role in Jered Weaver/Tigers feud. Weaver and the Angels manager got ejected from the game after the intentional throw at Avila. MLB later suspended Weaver for it. No Tiger was ejected from the game. Looks like Weaver was considered the instigator. Please consider that Guillen was backing Magglio, his fellow teammate and countrymen. Happy new year!

For the Bushleague category, the article said: "/White Sox feud." To clarify, Carlos Guillen was a Tiger involved in the play, not Ozzie who was a White Sox. I saw the whole game, so I think Mr. Snyder missed something when he knocked Carlos Guillen. Jared started the conflict earlier in the game by screaming at the Tiger's Magglio after his HR. When Carlos Guillen hit his HR, Carlos gave it back to Weaver. If you want to callout Bushleague, Weaver threw at the head of the next batter on the first pitch, Alex Avila. To Mr. Snyder: it pays to watch the whole game, not the 30 sec highlight of the play.

Nyger Morgan is a sociopathic, juvenile headcase... A lesser talent, but still deserving of being a "good" teamate of Milton Bradley, Carlos Zambrano, and K-Rod. The media sensationalists that feed these moron's need for publicity are the same guys who are supposed to have the good judgement to determine who gets into the Baseball Hall of Fame....maybe, they should be held as accomplices in one of these nut-jobs next criminal act, for encouraging them.

"can't look away" from Nyjer Morgan. In a heartbeat. As soon as I see his grand standing, hot dogging, obnoxious antics I hit the remote. He is an uninteresting tool.
