For those who don't know the situation, Greinke hits Quentin with a pitch in a situation where it's unlikely Greinke threw at him on purpose. Quentin takes steps towards the mound, Greinke says something, and Quentin charges mound, and the fight results in a broken collarbone for Greinke.

BTW, worst fight start in the history of baseball.

Looked like two rams butting into one another.

I think Quentin should have to go 10 rounds with Manny Pacquiao, winner gets to fight Mayweather.

Greinke shouldnt have lowered his head, and instead got Quentin in a headlock and gave him noogies Ryan-style.

Greinke grew up in Apopka....he should have learned better how to fight.....

Bad blood between these two dating back to Royals/White Sox days.  Quentin's a *****.  Get off the plate if you don't want to get hit.

Greinke throws 5 pitches then beans him??  Quentin is a retard and a *****.

Yeah Grinkie isnt throwing 5 pitches and hitting him on the 6th pitch especially when the Dodgers are up 2-1 in the 6th.

Regardless of what CQ did, Grienke could have kept his yap shut when CQ was chirping. 

And, FWIW, the action, not the result, drives the punishment.

as a life long Angels fan, it appears Greinke's collarbone should not go around attacking opposing players

I'd argue that when the batter is walking towards you, you can say something like "Get the f to 1st, clown."

I blame Greinke more for lowering his shoulder.

You can say something like that if you want the huge guy who took a step towards you to take some more of them.  Greinke said something which caused Quentin to come, they should both be suspended 5 games.  Of course, Greinke will miss those anyway...

You can say anything you want.    But you have to deal with the consequences.

THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES AND REPERCUSSIONS!!!

Anyway, my serious answer to the question at the top of the page is that his suspension should run concurrent with his jail term for assault and battery.
