There was one heck of a brawl in the stands in Cleveland on Saturday

This past weekend the Indians dropped two of three to the Twins in a series they had to have. They still have a couple of weeks to make up the four and a half games by which they trail Minnesota — and they still have a shot at passing either the Rays and/or the A’s and snagging the Wild Card — but they have an uphill climb compared to their competitors.

Perhaps that stressful state of affairs explains what happened in the stands during the second game of Saturday night’s doubleheader. Perhaps that is why the gentlemen in question engaged in fisticuffs, with one man literally dropping the damn People’s Elbow from one row down onto his opponent in the row below. Perhaps that is why the same man, moments later, made the ill-advised decision to continue to engage his larger and apparently more physically formidable adversary rather than remove himself from the situation despite having ceded the high ground.

Just be glad they weren’t offering ten-cent beer again…..
