Like all bench-clearing fights, the Yankees-Devil Rays brawl last week touched off the usual chatter about great skirmishes of the past.

A comment by faithful reader Caesar on this post got us thinking about one classic smackdown in particular: Pedro Martinez and Don Zimmer in Game 3 of the ALCS. Pre-cockfighting Pedro was pitching for the Boston Red Sox at the time and Zimmer was sleeping with the enemy on the New York Yankees coaching staff.

You’d think this video would be easy to find. Not so much. Here’s what we found. The quality isn’t great and every after the first 40 seconds is lame, but it’s a blast from the past all the same:

    A kindred spirit! Welcome to the blog! (Or at least the comments section of the blog). Indeed, just thinking about games 4-7 of the 2004 ALCS is enough to warm the cockles of my heart. (Which means I took it out of the freezer for this special occasion). Sigh . . .
