Major League Baseball put off announcing discipline for the Dodgers-Diamondbacks brawl by a day, but concern persists. Upon further review regarding the Dodgers-Diamondbacks melee, I'm more worried about Yasiel Puig, less worried about Zack Greinke and astonished that baseball doesn't ban bench-clearing brawls. I'm more worried about Puig because he was out of control during the fight, renewing questions about his makeup that date back to his time in Cuba. ... One Dodger pointed out that Puig's heated response was hardly inappropriate, considering that he was hit in the face. ... Perhaps Puig's conduct Tuesday night was simply an isolated and understandable reaction to a career-threatening beaning. Or perhaps it was a glimpse into an explosive personality, a sign of further trouble ahead. (Fox Sports) Comment
Chip Kelly now has a legitimate off-the-field issue with which to contend. Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle and five-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters was arrested in Monroe early Wednesday morning after drag racing and resisting a police officer by flight, police said. According to the arrest affidavit, Deputy L. Deal observed a white Camaro and blue sedan at the red light of U.S. 165 North and Central Street around 4:45 a.m. When the traffic light turned green, the Camaro and sedan accelerated at a high rate of speed and appeared to be racing. The deputy activated emergency lights and attempted to pull over the vehicles. The sedan immediately pulled over to the shoulder of the roadway, but the Camaro, driven by Peters, accelerated to an extreme high rate of speed. (USA Today Sports) Comment
Chris Bosh is on the move -- but he insists it's not to go anywhere else. [Bosh] has decided to put his 12,368-square-foot home on Miami Beach's North Bay Road on the market, the Miami Heat center on Wednesday told the Sun Sentinel. Bosh, however, stressed the decision was made with his family in mind, with his wife, Adrienne, expecting the couple's second child, and not because of concerns about the direction of his playing career. ... [Bosh] brushed off the impending change of addresses as a basketball-related move. "I'm in Miami for the rest of my career," he told the Sun Sentinel. "I plan to be there. I plan to retire there. I plan to win hopefully a lot more championships there. So that's where home is." (Sun-Sentinel) Comment
