However, you know that there would be universal criticism if these were Philly fans.
I disagree. There are certain teams whose fans are almost expected
to act like this. Phillies, Yankees, Raiders, that type of thing. If those teams' fans decided to start some shit, I doubt anyone would be surprised. More like, "Oh there they go again."
But who ever thought that Braves fans would do this? They're not supposed to act that way. Neither were Cardinals fans. You'd no more expect them to throw trash on the field than you'd expect to see a mosh pit at a Celine Dion concert...
That being said: Sam Holbrook really has a short fuse. Didn't he once eject Zach Greinke after like 4 pitches, just because Greinke spiked a ball nowhere near anyone else?
