    Baker suspended two games

    I have yet to find this on any of the usual suspects: Fay, Rosecrans, etc., but I just got a text alert from MLB.com that said:

    Reds manager Dusty Baker has been suspended two games for inappropriate actions during Thursday's game. His suspension will begin tonight.
    ----

    Obviously, I can't show all of you my phone, but this is fact, according to MLB.com.

    Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount after making contact with umpire Eric Cooper Thursday night.

    The incident happened during the seventh inning of Cincinnati's game against the San Diego Padres.

    Baker’s suspension is scheduled to begin tonight, when the Reds continue their series against the Padres.

    Any chance that means Junior will be out of the #2 or #3 hole and down to the 5, 6 or 7 where he belongs? Or will Dusty still make out the lineup?
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I think "Dudepick" still makes out the Lineup card, then the appointed Manager makes the moves during the Game.

    This isnt meant personal because alot of us feel like you.
    However I think we place alot of this on Dusty when in all actuality, I doubt there would be very many managers at all that would do that right now.
    Now the Patterson issue is a different story but as far as Jr, most managers would probably still bat him third.(with our current lineup I mean)

    i dont believe they showed contact last night during the game. The incident happened inbetween innings and during a commercial break.

    What a crock.!

    Did the umpire get suspended for egging a player on by staring him down the entire time he walked out to his position! I cant stand chump power hungry umpires.

    That's terrible. The umpire was looking to throw Edwin out. Dusty was just sticking up for him. Sometimes MLB needs to take a look at the umpire before the player/manager.

    Players have a union, and are able to fight any suspension; so it's much easier for MLB to just suspend a manager who cannot fight it, as they don't have a union.

    Justice served, in their eyes.

    Bumping the ump was the excuse used to suspend him. He "really" got suspended for drop-kicking his hat...IMO...
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Stop looking a gift horse in the mouth. With "Dude-Pick" gone, the chances of winning go up considerably. He's a horrible in-game manager.

    Yeah, how much ya wanna bet the Reds win tonight with "Dudepick" locked up again?

    I agree they may be better off with him serving H2O

    Complete and utter BS! You can say what you want about Dusty (I like him btw), but that certainly doesn't deserve a suspension. Crazy!!!
