A brief moment of anger is going to cost the Los Angeles Dodgers one of their starting pitchers for six to eight weeks. Zach Greinke fractured his collarbone in a collision with Carlos Quentin of the San Diego Padres. The hit comes at the start of a fight that cleared the benches, but is more notable for the way that play-by-play man Vin Scully narrated the whole mess.

Talk about your no-win situation!
