I don't believe it... Balkin Bob Davidson has reached the half-way mark with zero ejections.

Lindsay said...

I was just thinking as I was reading that was the biggest surprise up there!

Lindsay said...

You forgot about Quinn Wolcott who has 0 ejections.

Lindsay said...

Will Little also has 1

Lindsay said...

What a surprise.....Marty Foster among the leaders.

Lindsay said...

I was surprised too, though he has really toned it down since the suspension last year. I wonder if that affected him

Lindsay said...

Where's Jim Wolf at???

Lindsay said...

I heard that Wolf is on the DL with a Back Injury.

So from a points standpoint people are looking for a brawl of the magnitude of the LAD-ARI one so that Fagan can be knocked off his golden throne.
