The ninth innings of Friday's Red Sox-Rays game was full of madness and plenty of drama. After a pair of beanballs were exchanged from each side, the benches cleared and an all-out melee ensued.

    Remember, watching or going to the game is a pleasure...not a plethora of whiney millionaire brats.

    You are very welcome!
