    Yeah, I didn't have any problem with Mr. Barrett having a personal business meeting with Mr. Pi..antski. A.J. is known around the league for his wonderful 'clubhouse presence'. I'm sure MB was just expressing his opinion for A.J.'s edification. :

    It should be something more, 5 games is 1 start, 0 if the have an off day.

    Ain't that the truth. Pierzynski somehow managed to get kicked out of that game and fined for scoring a run and then getting punched.

    How come you get a 5 game suspension when you bean a guy with a 90mph fastball, or charge the mound? I guess if you actually connect on a punch, you get more? Does that seem fair? A pitcher just misses one start, Barrett will miss 10. Those suspensions are so random..not really fair.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    And when do the suspensions start? Any old time the player feels like it?

    IMHO, they should begin immediately with no chance for the player/manager to plan it out depending on what teams they face in the near future.

    Just do it, with no bias on opposition!

    I agree. Someone told me that they appeal and then if they can swing it start serving when they get a minor injury. seems kind of pointless.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    If you appeal they should not allow the appeal to be dropped.
