An Upcoming Episode Of ‘The Franchise: A Season With The San Francisco Giants’ Just Got A HELL Of A Lot More Interesting!

Where Shane Victorino is kind of like the Hawaiian version of Olimar

In my review of the most recent “Franchise” episode, I basically said it was the most disappointing of the series.

But I guarantee disappointing won’t be a word I use for a future episode as long as it showcases what happened tonight between the Giants and the Phillies.

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Considering Wednesday’s show spent most of its time covering the happenings during last week’s Giants-Phillies series in Philadelphia, I’m sure this incident will get a  lot of air time. And you know a lot of those players were wearing microphones.

“Hey, (expletive) you, (expletive)! (Expletive) stop it. (Expletive) (expletive)! It worked for “The Sopranos,” so if Showtime can get 30 minutes out of this thing, I’m all for it.

Best part of the fight? Umpires and coaches unable to hold back the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Shane Victorino as he spears his most hated Giant … 44-year-old hitting coach Hensley Meulens. Hey, it’s a dog-eat-dog world. You gotta keep your head on a swivel, man.

And I don’t want to even think about the carnage that must have been taking place in the middle of that scrum for a good 25 seconds (notice everybody looking down soon after the two sides converge).

Victorino, catcher Eli Whiteside and pitcher Ramon Ramirez were ejected. The Giants’ TV broadcast team were questioning why Whiteside got tossed from the game; they said he was just trying to protect his pitcher. Note to baseball players: During a brawl, there are many, many, many, many, many, many ways to protect your pitcher without attempting to score a two-point takedown. Unfortunately for Whiteside, his move wasn’t successful.

The Phillies won an otherwise-dull game, 9-2, but who cares? That’s already been forgotten.

Baseball benches and bullpens clear sometimes just for the hell of it. But this was a legitimate, full-out, go-for-the-throat baseball brawl.

AND HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THAT?!
