When does Varitek serve his suspension

Postby Captain Jack Sparrow » Fri Jul 30, 2004 9:38 pm

I thought it was supposed to start tonight, but he's playing...

Is he appealing like a-rod?

What is he appealing? He started the fight. It's like Ortiz appealing his suspension after throwing to bats at the umpires or Zambrano for throwing at Edmonds. What did they think was gunna happen to them?

Everyone appeals, then, if their appeal isn't heard yet, they might drop their appeal and serve the suspension during a series against a crappy team. Most of the time when they appeal, the league reduces the suspension by a game or two. The Red Sox play the Devil Rays next week, so you might see one of them drop their appeal and start serving it. On the broadcast today, the Sox' announcers mentioned Ortiz as one who might do that.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

Don't underestimate the D-Rays. They are no longer the push over they used to be.
