The fact that A-Rod was suspended at all for defending himself (we know Varitek yelled at A-Rod before A-Rod started cursing back. It is a fact) is also a disgrace. The Sturze, Nixon, Kapler ones are justified. In a nutshell, Varitek should have gotten at least 5, based on other less severe incidents that got 5, and A-Rod should perhaps have gotten 1, but absolutely less than the guy who started the brawl.
Blankman, totally disagree. Arod started the whole thing by not taking his base. I would have expected Tek to get one more game, though.
Sturtze's suspension is a joke. As a SP, that means he misses no games. What a fraud. And he did the most dangerous thing--attacking Kaplar, in a choke hold, from behind--and he doesn't miss time?
And Kaplar is defending himself--like Arod, but without the provacation--and he misses three games? What a sham.
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
