Did anyone see the Yankees - Red Sox game last night? In the eighth inning a Red Sox fan took a swipe at Sheffield as Sheff was fielding what turned out to be a triple. This incident confirms Boston as a city of provincial cowards. First the guy clearly took a cheap shot at Sheff, and the only reason their is any question about it is because it was a girlyman kind of swing. Secondly, not mentioned is the guy to the left of the incident, who throws his beer at Sheffield once he realizes that an altercation is underway. It's difficult to see how anyone can look at the tape and say nothing happened.
Sheffied demonstrated incredible restraint in not going after the fan, and should be commended.
