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. Well, Rays' manager Joe Maddon apparently was furious with Boston's behavior in the incident.

    It has become a cancer and this fan is waiting for the NFL to get underway, anyway. At least the 'action' is more controlled and disciplined.

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

    You are very welcome!
