It looked like Zack hurt his left shoulder when he threw it against the much bigger and charging Carlos Quinton. It's too bad AJ Ellis didn't react faster and and grabbed the dude. I'm definitely crossing my fingers that Grienke didn't do any serious damage to that extremely valuable left arm/shoulder. SMH!

They're saying it's a broken collarbone. No idea what Quentin was thinking. That wasn't even a baseball play. The score is 2-1, with a 3-2 count, why would Greinke throw at him on purpose. All Quentin had to do was take first base.

It looked like Ellis didn't think Quentin was going to rush the mound I think. At least it wasn't his pitching shoulder.

[quote]LA irate after melee in win leaves Greinke hurt

By Ken Gurnick

SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers' fury over Zack Greinke's broken left collarbone, ignited by Carlos Quentin charging the mound in the sixth inning Thursday night, overshadowed Juan Uribe's pinch-homer that gave Los Angeles a 3-2 win over the Padres.

It simmered throughout the postgame comments and spilled into the service tunnel as the Dodgers were about to walk through the Padres players' parking lot to board their buses for the airport an hour after this strange and volatile game ended.

In the tunnel is where Matt Kemp and Quentin met in a tense, face-to-face confrontation, Kemp asking Quentin why he'd charge the mound, Quentin saying his head was thrown at. Quentin started pointing, Kemp warned Quentin to stop and at that point the pair was separated by teammates and friends. Hanley Ramirez first intervened, then Clayton Kershaw grabbed Kemp from going back for more, while Clayton Richard was backing up Quentin.

Jeff- that was crazy man. BTW I had a brain cramp- yes thankfully it's his left shoulder. I wonder how long he will be out- probably 2 months? Can the Dodgers sue Carlos Quentin for like $10 million (or whatever prorated amount of $ of Zack's salary for this season)?

Yeah on the initial play, at full speed I thought it was his right arm too. Fortunately it was his left, tough looks like he's out 2 months, while Quentin is only suspended 8 games. Still sends the wrong message I think, as your basically telling a team they might have a free shot at a pitcher, and maximum games a player will be suspended is 8 games. Let's hope Capuano can find some of his 1st half season mojo that he had last year. At least Ryu has been pretty solid, and Becket hasn't been all that bad.
