participation during this skirmish. The question remains: What will be the...
Alfredo Aceves comes off as a scary dude.
Not only does Aceves throw gas when he’s on the mound, but he also has a rather intimidating aura about him, which is enough for most guys to refrain from picking a fight with the Red Sox right-hander.
Canadian outfielder Tyson Gillies apparently didn’t get the memo, though. Or perhaps the Phillies minor leaguer has a death wish. Either...
