On the subject of Coco Crisp's reduced suspension reguarding the brawl between the Red Sox & Rays.
"What happaned is, in this case, the Red Sox retain their Most Favorite Nation status in the eyes of Major League Baseball. That's just very clear that the message sent out of all of that to every other team in baseball, with the exception of the Yankees, would be you just better not mess with the Red Sox or the Yankees or don't defend yourself against those two teams because if you do, Major League Baseball doesn't like it. That's just not right."
Dewayne Staats (Tampa Bay Rays TV announcer)
I couldn't have said it any better myself!
