Isn't that your whole point of how the brawl started? It triggered everything. If Carpenter doesn't pop off at Baker (and Dusty is not innocent in this either) than Cueto is not put into a position to kick. Things had calmed down and only escalated after Carpenter said something to Dusty. That should count for something.
I'm not saying that Cueto should not be suspended, but I think to be only player is not right?
If the argument comes back to Phillips should suspended because of what he said, which has been suggested, then others (Molina, Carpenter and anybody else) should receive something other than a small fine that will likely go to charity.
