MLB gives out suspensions/fines for the Dodgers and Dbacks

What are your thoughts?

I'm glad to see Greinke didn't get suspended, but I am surprised Puig, Kershaw, and Uribe didn't get suspended. I also think what Kennedy did warrants more than a 10 game suspension.

if they time it right, its only one start.

he is scheduled to start Sunday, and the Dbacks are off Thursday, and then the following Monday.

just saying.

edit: wait, sorry. Thats games, not days. Make it two starts.

Just so long as he gets the Padres on Sunday. looking forward to the bump in the ol Pythagorean.

Seems about right. It was a slap fest anyways the only dangerous acts were the pitches to the heads.

how and the hell did Greinke not get suspended? he drilled Montero right in the back on purpose. so what MLB is saying, is sometimes it's OK to intentionally throw at and hit a batter. that's borderline assault with a deadly weapon.
maybe Greinke didn't get suspended because the pitch he threw hit a batter in the back, rather than up around the head. but still, he got damn lucky for what he did do.
I have to wonder if MLB went easy on Greinke because he got his ass owned by Carlos Quentin and already missed time on the DL.

Can't remember when any pitcher got suspended for hitting someone in the back intentional or not, kicked out of the game yes but suspended no.

The added ability to appeal the suspensions and essentially choose the days to be suspended is what really make this easy for Kennedy. A one game suspension should be something like 7 games for a pitcher.
