Kurkjian said he'll appeal, but will probably be shut down because Selig won't reduce it.

Drop him for Haren.

Now.

Even if he wasn't suspended.

;-D
I'm getting feeling there is going to b a new Big Three. With Zito still leading the charge.

Zito won't go
<Jun. 27> Peter Gammons reports that Billy Beane continues to tell teams he won't trade Zito during the season.

"Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them I'm not trading Zito," Beane said.

He deserved it. I would have liked to see him get even more. No excuse.

I agree the suspension should have been longer. Rogers was beyond being out of line.

The fact he's apparently eligible for the All Star game doesn't mean he'll be chosen. His stats may indicate he earned his spot, but I suspect he'll be left off the team. I certainly hope so, as I don't want him being able to cash in on an incentive that's certainly in his contract.

And I don't see any reduction coming from Selig. He'll sit the full 20.

I guess you think he didn't do anything that was much of a big deal. :-[

IMO, should be more. How is this any kind of punishment to a multi-millionaire? SHould he be able to just bitch-slap anyone he doesn't like anytime he feels like it?

I have to disagree here. If I was shoved to the ground by some buffoon while simply trying to do my job, I'd want that guy to face some serious punishment. There's simply no room for that kind of behavior. Fighting another player is one thing, but a defenseless camera man? I don't think so.
