Roger Clemens suspended 5 games

I didn't see this anywhere. Obviously he only misses one start or has one start pushed back a day or two depending on when he appeals, but this is someone for those in weekly leagues to pay attention to.

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays and Yankees are going to have to pay for their actions after clearing the benches twice during a heated on-field incident on Tuesday night in Toronto.

On Thursday, Major League Baseball vice president of on-field operations Bob Watson handed out punishment to eight different parties, with Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens receiving the brunt of the penalties.

After both Toronto and New York were issued warnings by home-plate umpire Angel Hernandez on Tuesday, Clemens hit Toronto's Alex Rios in the back with a 1-0 pitch to lead off the seventh inning. As a result, Watson handed Clemens an undisclosed fine and suspended the 45-year-old pitcher for five games.

Good to hear.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.
