    I will be keeping track of all the pre-game controversy in this post.

    Game 1 Highlights

    Video: Freddie Freeman exits game in 5th inning after getting hit by pitch on left hand
    Video: Tempers flare in Atlanta when Kevin Pillar uses homophobic slur after being quick-pitched
    Video: Benches clear again after Bautista flips his bat on a solo home run

    Fallout of Pillar incident

    Tweet: Kevin Pillar post-game apology #1
    Tweet: Kevin Pillar post-game apology #2
    Tweet: Statement from Kevin Pillar
    Tweet: Statement from Toronto Blue Jays

    Tweet: (Davidi) Major League Baseball is investigating Kevin Pillar's possible use of a homophobic slur last night in exchange with Jason Motte.
    Tweet: (Armstrong) Blue Jays say club is taking alleged Kevin Pillar homophobic slur "seriously." GM Ross Atkins on his way to ATL. More to come.

    Tweet: (Davidi) Kevin Pillar suspended for two games

    Fallout of Freeman HBP

    Tweet: (Rosenthal) Braves’ Freeman has a fractured left wrist. Expectation is that he will miss at least eight weeks.
    Tweet: (Gammons) One Brave veteran told a friend "we'll have a fight today" after Loup broke Freddie Freeman's hand (re-tweeted by Josh Donaldson)

    Easy win. Bautista warming up to rake against Baltimore and Texas. Hopefully Pillar isn't suspended.

    Teheran will hit Bautista in the first and be ejected. Only HBP of the night.

    Hopefully the team just accepts the Bautista plunking and moves on. They did just injure Freddie Freeman for 2-3 months.

    Looking forward to the inevitable pulled calf/hammy injuries in the pointless scrum

    I'm just glad Donaldson isn't with the team so he doesn't try to swan dive into a bunch of dudes again.

    Very excited to see Ross and Kevin in their most emasculated and ultimate virtue-signalling forms

    So does Bautista get hit in the first or later on when the game is settled? This is probably going to be one of those really stupid contests.
