Look, I think Carlos Quentin was in the wrong here. But dudes, someone needs to sit Zack Greinke down and tell him that you can’t go after a man’s junk like this:
Both from the Associated Press. Additional, horrifying image here.
A left hook!….Making it count. Does that make the count 2-0 or 0-2?
That’s how Greinke’s left collarbone was broken! Quentin wears a stainless steel cup.
That’s a real dick move there…
Goin for the meat and two veg, eh Zack?
First time Quentin made solid contact all season.
And since it was 0-2 when Grienke hit quentin, i guess Greinke had 2 balls to waste…
Funny, but actually the count was 3-2.
ah well then….whoops.
Sometimes when your in a fight you have to pull out all the stops to beat your opponent
He’s just making sure that Quentin’s cup is present and positioned properly. I’m really disappointed that no one seems to employ the flying dropkick on a charging opponent anymore.
Is it fair to say that Carlos Quentin’s crotch is mightier than Zack Greinke’s left collar bone? SOMETHING breaks Zack’s clavicle and I think the perp’s Quentin’s Junk.
Pitchers hate guys crowding the plate. Zach is probably trying to ensure that doesn’t pass the crowding gene on to potential offspring.
So you are saying that Quentin’s Genetic Prerogative overcomes Zach’s attempts at neutralization? Damn. Carlos Quentin’s Seed Factory is not to be trifled be with.
Or, cur, try the running clothesline and follow it up with a leg drop?
There’s nothing wrong with going after someone’s junk in a fight. He’s bigger and trying to hurt you, a fantastic nut shot is the great equalizer.
As a member of the physically weaker sex, I approve this message.
My father taught me stamp on the guy’s instep and then knee in the groin. Had to do it once… Cops came and said I was foolish for defending myself… No regrets.
My dad taught me the same thing. I’ve fortunately not been in a position to do it. I’m glad it worked out ok for you.
Also, the element of surprise is your friend.
Wow, beware the ladies of HBT!
Good for you, because it is ever so true that a man who raises his hand to a woman or small child, is no man at all.
Teenage meathead guys on the other hand, beatings fully deserved.
All that for insulting you on a baseball blog?
Just kidding. Seriously, it is a shame a woman is ever in that position. Glad you handled it well.
Greinke hits Quentin low with a left. Breaks left clavicle.
Only one logical conclusion to draw here about Mr. Quentin…
Huevos. Huevos de acero.
That looks likely unintentional. Looks more like he’s just grabbing to get leverage to keep Quentin from taking him down than he’s trying to rip his junk off.
I don’t know that you can say that junk is off limits in a fight, though.
Greinke could’ve just done an HBPiD in the first place.
Word. No charging the mound after that.
No. Way. Carlos’s Junk is so mighty that Zack’s collar bone shattered when he tried to manhandle Carlos’s Wedding Tackle. Clearly if Zack threw the Dickslayer it would have resulted in ALL if Zack’s bones shattering. Carlos Quentin’s Junk is mighty. Too mighty for Zach Greinke at any rate.
Now, it is in the nature of us boys that, when confronted by two species of interesting organisms, to wonder which would win in a fight. My brothers and I used to call it the “Ultimate Deathmatch Phenomena”. It is for this reason that small boys would put a preying mantis in the same box with a horned beetle or some other interesting pair of eye catching bugs: who would win in a fight to the death?
We already know who is the mightier in Verlander’s Dickslayer and Valdespin’s Junk. A clear and unequivocal Verlander victory. The criteria for Ultimate Deathmatch Phenomena is now set and DEMANDS that Quentin’s Junk be put up against the Verlander Dickslayer.
Yes! Verlander’s Dickslayer vs. Quentin’s huevos de acero! The people demand this. Make it so.
Greinke’s problem is he let Quentin within arm’s reach when he went for the junk. No. These are things better handled by a drone baseball. The Dickslayer wins before the huevos even mobilize…but either way, the Beaverman is standing, shivering, in a pile of his own fertilizer.
@’Philliac: You should be made aware of this:
Beavers are not to be trifled with…
Meh, not Canadian.
All attack beavers are Canadian. That’s why they are known as Castor canadensis. There IS a European beaver (Castor fiber) but it is a runty lil thing and easily outcompeted by the big tough Canadian Beaver. Fear us.
Please don’t try to lecture me on beaver.
I am a Lay Authority on Beaver. I’ve dealt with several specimens and even assisted in operations on 3 of them. My younger brother is an environmental ecologist specializing in re-colonization of logged habitats, especially with respect to The Beaver. I can hold my own in most Beaver Debates.

This is low-hanging fruit, but Greinke, with Craig’s assistance, has redefined “Junk Ball Pitcher”.
And you said “low hanging fruit”.
Say what you will about brawls and baseball, but Dodgers vs. Padres games just became a lot more compelling for the remaining 16 games they meet this season.
That’s fertilizer, Zachary.
Ha, front page of ESPN baseball has another angle complete with crotch grab.
Check out Yonder Alonso and whoever #28 is for the dodgers in the first pic.
They both have the “ermahhgerd” face hahah
Yonder looks like he is gonna pounce on someone and claw them to death lol
Man, I love the high-definition world we now live in.
Greinke’s got two balls and one strike on Quentin.
The backup dancers to the sides in the 1st shot really add to it. Everybody say “hey-y.”
Craig – Your the perfect straight man, posting this for all the amusing replies. You should work the Catskills.
Zach will be back but sd will always be sd.
I guess he’s just a low-ball pitcher…
What a couple of nuts!
I wonder if Greinke yelled out “That’s my purse, I don’t know you!” before the blow?
The picture of the bears is my favorite thing ever.
