Ex- Red Sox Jose Offerman's Temper Violently Flares Again

For the second time in 2 1/2 years, ex-Red Sox infielder and former All Star Jose Offerman let his temper get the best of him while ON THE FIELD. You may recall a couple years ago he repeatedly swung a bat at a pitcher whose pitch came a little close to his body. If I remember correctly, he charged the mound, bullike, and tried to hurt the guy. Well, this time it was a little different. Now he's the manager of the Licey Tigers of the Dominican winter league. After an argument about an ejection of one of his players with ANOTHER umpire, Offerman got into it with first base umpire Daniel Rayburn that eventually led to Offerman cold-cocking (unannounced punch) Rayburn. The game was on Dominican television and all you have to do is click on this post's title to see the entire incident. When you do, scroll down to the bottom of the Boston Herald article until you see the You Tube screen and click on that. Thank you Boston Herald & You Tube! Click away and enjoy...the commentary is in Spanish but the video tells the story. By the way, Offerman's team was down 6-0 at the time but that's absolutely no excuse for what he did. The police put him in jail until the end of the game so Rayburn could decide if he wanted to press charges. I hope he did...the guy's an as*hole.

That's the only Boston Red Sox-related story I could find that was interesting to me. I know you'll find the video interesting so don't forget to click on this post's title. As always, BE WELL. I'll be back tomorrow, if not sooner. Thanks.
