SAN FRANCISCO - A day later, they were still watching. The images were played on TVs, video equipment in the Phillies clubhouse, and Shane Victorino's iPad.
"It was a regular brawl," Placido Polanco said. "It's not the first one, and it's not going to be the last one."
That didn't prevent smiles and a swell of confidence Saturday. The repercussions from Friday's fight night may not come until Monday from the commissioner's office, but Victorino is expecting a suspension for his actions.
Victorino said he clinched it when he reentered the fracas during the sixth inning of the Phillies' 9-2 rout and tackled Giants hitting coach Hensley Meulens. (Victorino said he wasn't going after the 44-year-old coach on purpose. He said he saw Carlos Ruiz in danger and torpedoed in the catcher's general direction.)
