    Mesa suspended 4 games for throwing at Vizquel; Morris, Righetti finedApril 28, 2006

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Colorado Rockies pitcher Jose Mesa was suspended four games by Major League Baseball on Friday for intentionally throwing at San Francisco shortstop Omar Vizquel.
    Mesa threw at Vizquel's head during the eighth inning of last Saturday's game at Denver. Unless appealed, the suspension is scheduled to begin Friday night against the Florida Marlins.
    Giants pitcher Matt Morris and pitching coach Dave Righetti were fined undisclosed amounts for their actions during a game the following day. Morris was fined for intentionally throwing at Colorado's Matt Holliday in the first inning. Righetti was fined for throwing his pitch counter onto the field and yelling at umpire Travis Reininger after being ejected.

    I have a distinct feeling this won't be the last we see of Mesa vs. Vizquel. IIRC, Mesa's hit Vizquel each of the last 3 times they've faced.

    That seems rather lenient for a repeated, premeditated act.

    That's ridiculous! Depending on which games he and/or his management choose, he won't even miss a start. Not even a slap on the hand in my mind.

    Way to go MLB... that's some punishment for a guy who really needs an anger management course. Why don't you just wait until he hurts Omar?

    Ooops! Why on earth did I think he was a starter.

    Well, I guess that's a little better but still not much more than a slap on the wrist.
