I had one plan when I went to work this morning: compile as much information as possible on the Red Sox/Rays history of brawling. Sure, they (you know, the giant Big Brother corporate “they”) watch every second I’m surfing the web and threaten “disciplinary actions up to and including termination,” but this is go time. The Rays hold a sliver of a lead in the East and the Sox are welcoming them into their Fenway lair for a showdown. So I figured it was worth risking my job to have a good pre-game post prepared.

Luckily, the folks over at Boston.com have done all of the legwork for me. So I got to run TPS reports all day.
