Yet players who mouthed off (and I'm including Phillips in that) and instigated the brawl and then re-ignited it once again after it had appeared to have calmed down get a slap on the wrist.
But again, we are talking about Major League Baseball officials.
Umps don't have the benefit of instant replay to see who did what. I didn't see it the first time I saw the brawl live. I don't have a problem with Cueto suspension but good lord Carp should've gotten hit with about 4 games at least.
