Which is exactly why I love what the Rays are doing as a team; Not just rolling over and dying...showing some life and sticking up for each other.
As far as punishment goes, you have to figure Crisp, Gomes, Crawford, Shields and Iwamura all see something. Tough to say who gets the most (depends on if they look at the events leading up to this).
If I had to guess on most severe to least severe punishment I'd think Crisp 5 Games (as the guy who charged) Gomes 5 games, Crawford 3 games, Iwamura 3 games and Shields sneaking by with a 1 game suspension (yes he hit Crisp...but can they prove that the ball didn't just "slip").
I don't think they can prove whether or not the ball slipped, but the MLB won't miss the haymaker that he threw and whiffed on. Intent of the punch will get him 5 games as well I think.
