Suspensions in from Cubs / Sox brawl

Postby chitownjts » Fri May 26, 2006 10:39 am

From MLB.Com

A total of four members of the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox organizations have been disciplined for their participation in an on-field altercation during the bottom of the second inning of the Saturday, May 20th game between the two clubs at U.S. Cellular Field. Bob Watson, Vice President of On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Cubs catcher Michael Barrett has been suspended for 10 games and fined an undisclosed amount for his violent actions, which led to the bench-clearing incident.

White Sox outfielder Brian Anderson has been suspended for five games and fined an undisclosed amount for his aggressive and violent actions during the bench-clearing incident.

White Sox third base coach Joey Cora has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount for his aggressive actions.

White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski has been fined an undisclosed amount for his conduct during the incident.

All three suspensions are scheduled to begin on Friday, when the White Sox are at Toronto and the Cubs host Atlanta. If appealed, the suspensions of Anderson and Barrett will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.


As a Barrett owner :~(

Gonna have to drop a decent player for a scrub WW catcher til he comes back

I thought it should be more than 10 games.
Why is Pierzynski getting fined? Because of his reputation?
That's ridiculous.

I didn't see the aftermath to see if A.J. should have gotten fined but that punch from Barrett was complete bull shit (again, this is coming from a Cubs fan). I'd be fine with more than 10 games but I'd say 10 is enough to send a message.

I imagine A.J. said something to instigate the punch..thus the fine. other than that A.J. was in the clear...and i'm just guessing that he may have said something to bring the punch..i've no proof.
As for Barrett being suspended..he did probably deserve worse but 10 games will definately send a message.

The suspensions are supposed to begin today (Friday) but Barrett is obviously playing. Am I to take that to mean that they're appealing?
