Blue Jays Bomb the Bronx Bombers

All that was missing from New York vs Toronto Tuesday was a steel cage.

JERRY!! JERRY!! JERRY!! They Yankees and Blue Jays threw down twice in the 8th inning of Tuesday’s game in New York of a 10-4 Blue Jays win. Things started in the 6th when Jays’ batter Edwin Encarnacion was hit in the shoulder and earlier in the 8th when another Jays’ batter Aaron Hill was hit in the back. Obviously, this last one in particular was viewed as intentional, since in the bottom of the inning, Jesse Carlson threw a ball way behind Jorge Posada, leading to an intense stare-down and peaceful bench clearing incident.

Posada ended up walking, and would later score on a double. As he ran past Carlson, who was covering the plate, he elbowed Carlson in the chest, which drew some shouts which immediately sparked the second, yet violent bench-clearing brawl. Both players were obviously ejected, though the fun didn’t end there. We couldn’t see what was going on in the thick pile, though Carlson came out bleeding from a welt on his forehead. Catcher Rod Barajas was dragged along the ground by his chest protector at one point, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi took a shot to his left eye and ear, cutting his ear in the process.

Remarkably, cuts and scrapes were the worst of things on either side. The Blue Jays finished their defeat of the Yankees, which coupled with a Red Sox victory puts the Red Sox 6.5 games behind the Yankees in the AL East. If we keep playing like this and the Yankees keep playing like that (and fighting their players away), we might win the division after all.
