Is there more to baseball than fighting?
ESPN seems to think the best picture to represent the baseball series starting tonight between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees is a photo of Jason Varitek and Alex Rodriguez fighting. Yes, there is a pretty serious rivalry between these two teams, and a history of bench-clearing action, but I still don't think it has to be the focus.
I missed the pre-game footage, last time I saw a game between these two teams there was a music-pumping montage of all the fights that have happened over the past two seasons.
All I can say is that it's sad they couldn't find something better to focus on.
