A somewhat scary moment in last night’s Indians-Angels tilt, as Michael Brantley was removed from the game after taking a knee to the head while trying to break up a double play.

The team said that Brantley passed all the initial concussion tests. His neck was stiff, however, and their taking him out of the game was done a precautionary measure.

Brantley has been the Indians best all-around player this year so any time without him would be most unwelcome. For now the news seems to be cautiously optimistic.

    I remember when years ago, Amézaga slammed a throw right in Posada’s face because Sciosia didn’t like a previous slide by Posada at second base… a bit after that, Amézaga was released and talked briefly for spanish speaking media about the incident and how things players feel they are being “ordered” to do by managers and coaches to police the game.
