09:26 AM ET 04.13 | Paul Konerko defended former White Sox teammate Carlos Quentin on Friday, saying his motives for charging Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke run deeper than getting hit by him for the third time Thursday night. "If you watch the games I've watched, he probably has had more than five pitches that have gone over his head," Konerko said of Quentin, now with the Padres, charging Greinke after a 3-2 pitch hit him and igniting a bench-clearing brawl that resulted in Greinke suffering a broken right collarbone. "At some point, it's going to be the last straw and that's what happened."

If people thought Greinke had emotional problems before this incident, just wait. He's damaged goods now.

It is pretty well documented that Zach has battled depression and social anxiety disorder, throughout his career.

These umps really got to start enforcing not giving the hitters the base if they don't make an attempt to get out of the way. This Carlos dude never made any attempt at moving, a 12 year old could have moved out of the way of that 89 mph pitch, no excuses.

Good point and I believe Quentin got hit by a curve ball!! Watch the video and you will see that the ball "sailed" on Greinke!!! There is no way that Greinke will hit Quentin on purpose, with a 3-2 count in a one run game!!!

He's a well known head case.

Who, Greinke or Quentin, or both????

Okay, whatever!!! Zach is one of the top pitchers in the league and if anyone thinks that he will be "damaged goods now (comment #1), then that is their opinion and it sounds like they want Zach to fail this year!! :-)

I never said I wanted the guy to fail. That would be putting words in my mouth. You're an odd fellow.

Did Zach show any of this "depression and social anxiety disorder", when this idiot "Quentin charged the mound"???

A curve ball? It was an 89 mph fastball.

Why are you putting everything in quotes? Are you doing that with your fingers too after you type these things?

Then, what was the purpose of your comment #1, "If people thought Greinke had emotional problems before this incident, just wait. He's damaged goods now."???? Why would this affect Greinke in the future???

Pretty much everyone. You should talk less and read more.
