I don't think the Royals want your damn champagne!!!

Just days after is was reported that Torri Hunter's act of generosity by shipping 4 bottles of champagne to the Kansas Royals making good on a promise he made after the Royals swept Detroit last September, which helped the Twins capture their division could mean a significant ban from baseball(a minimum of 3 years). The Royals decided to return the favor and send him an act of generosity of their own, three stitches.

Torri Hunter was struck in the mouth by a pitch from Royal's shy pitcher, Zack Greinke in the second inning of the game tonight and knocked him out of the rest of the game. Hunter's first move was to charge the mound, but after taking two steps, he changed his mind and falling to his knees in pain. Hunter is fine and said he plans to play Friday against the Detroit Tigers. Greinke apologized after the game and Hunter accepted the apology.

"You don't want to do that ever," Greinke said about the Hunter beaning. "I just felt bad about it. He's a good guy. Everybody knows that."

It would have been interesting to see Greinke's reaction had Hunter charged him, seeing as how Greinke was put on the 60-day DL last year after suffering from social anxiety disorder and was having trouble working out in front of others. And by "working out" they probably meant showering in front of the other guys. Come on, everybody remembers those dumb sex ed videos back in day with little Johnny getting embarrassed because he's not as big as the other guys, "down there". Let me stop right now, I can only imagine the random searches i'm going to get over this post.

And just for the hell of it, here's a old fashioned baseball fight. Well, kind of.

Oh and don't mess with "Steve", nobody fucks with Steve!


The Twins won the game by the way, on a game-winning RBI single by Mike Redmond that scored last year's runner-up MVP, Justin Morneau in the 11th inning.
