Does SFG southpaw Madison Bumgarner ever lose his cool with Caucasian players?

San Francisco Giants star pitcher Madison Bumgarner has won many accolades for his clutch performances. He's also had many notable run-ins with opposing players. Here's one list of conflicts he's had, including today's bench-clearing dustup with the Texas Rangers. As a close follower of the National League West, I've noticed that I've never seen him lose his cool at a non-Hispanic or non-black player. Has he shouted at or admonished a non-Hispanic white player at any point of his Major League career? I'd be delighted if someone could find an instance in which he has done so.

MLB.tv blackout workarounds?

(Asking for a friend): I am a Chicago Cubs fan living in NC, which means that I don't fall within the blackout restrictions put in place by mlb.tv. The league blacks out games that fall in the "home area" of a team; for NC, those are Atlanta, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Washington. ATL and CIN are not a problem, because those games are shown on local cable; however, the other 2 are not. Anyone know of a way around this? I have Preferred TV cable package w/Time Warner (only choice in my area). Would rather not have cable at all. Thanks.

Action only NFL / MLB games / videos?

I'm interested in finding a site / YouTube channel / similar portal that shows only the "action" portion of sporting events. For example, a Youtube channel that would edit out all of the footage from NFL games, showing only the time when the clock was running. MLB has clips of key pitches/hits on their site (as does the NFL), but not the whole game from what I can find. Can anyone point me in the right direction of a full game trimmd down to only the "action"?

Hi MeFi, A friend is trying to find a bar/place in Boston that is playing the A's game (or is an Oakland A's bar)...I know, I know...most are just playing the Red Sox, but you are all the intelligentsia of what's around, so figured I'd ask you! Thanks a lot!

Best strategy for buying Red Sox tickets mid-April

Wife, kid and I are going to Boston in mid-April for the Marathon, and we'd like to take in a Red Sox game since kid is a huge fan. We are not regular MLB ticket purchasers though. Should we buy tickets now at 2X list price from a broker, or wait until closer to game day and hope the price drops? Are weekdays less likely to sell out? (teams on the schedule are Rangers and Angels, and it's Marathon weekend).
