Don’t dig in tonight, Carlos Quentin

There was no immediate retaliation visited upon Carlos Quentin after he charged the mound and broke Zack Geinke’s collarbone. But Jeff Passan notes that, at the time, the Dodgers were saying that his time was going to come, with one unnamed Dodger telling Passan:

“We will get him,” he said. “It may not be next time we see him. It may not be the time after that. It may not be two times after that. But we will get him. I promise.”

The Dodgers meet the Padres tonight, kicking off a three-game set. Greinke won’t be going in the series so there won’t be a chance of direct retribution, but it wouldn’t be shocking if someone threw a ball at Quentin.

It’ll be awesome when it happens and the Dodgers pitcher says it just slipped out of his hand or Don Mattingly talks about how “you never want to hit a guy in that situation.”
