As noted in this morning's recap, Brewers slugger Prince Fielder got all shove-y with teammate Manny Parra, who weighs somewhat less than Fielder's two metric tons.

Anyway, MLB got all bitchy and removed all the YouTube videos of the fight for copyright infringement.  I'm no legal expert, but I think it's weird how videos of major league players hitting home runs and making great defensive plays don't violate MLB copyright, but videos of baseball players fighting do.  If I didn't know any better, I'd almost think that Major League Baseball was selectively enforcing the letter of the law in an effort to suppress videos that showed its players in a negative light.

Well, guess what, Bud Selig?  I got your fair-use RIGHT HERE.  "Right here" being both this video and my junk.
