Still having doubts about how serious the incident was? Still on the fence? Fair enough, how about what the umpiring crew chief had to say then? Regarding Jabba the Chamberlain's throwing at Youkilis's head, not once but twice in succession;
"Those were two pretty nasty pitches the young man threw. Up here, you need to be a little better throwing strikes, and we just had to put a lid on it before there was a problem." - crew chief Derryl Cousins
If you love sports, and I know I do, you know there is a beautiful 'flow' to it. For every action in sports there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Jabba the Chamberlain hasn't only offended the Red Sox with his idiotic, dangerous actions last night he has also stirred the Sports Karma Gods, and those bastards are cruelly creative. Put it this way, don't be too shocked if Chamberlain injures his back digging into a 'Big Daddy Bucket' KFC meal in the near future.
Sports Karma aside, the Boston Red Sox certainly have noted the incident down quietly. "If that young man is trying to get our attention, he did a very good job," Red Sox skipper Tito Francona said.
"It will be interesting to see how that series plays out," Youkilis said, talking about New York's upcoming visit to Fenway Park.
Leaving the best to last, how about the Boston Red Sox hard throwing closer, Jon Papelbon's comments, let's leave it with this
"You know what happens when you wake a sleeping giant''
Speak softly and carry a 98mph inferno-baller closer
