I think teams now are thinking they can get under the Jays skin if they throw the ball inside and play jerk ball...  made no sense for the ump not to toss Hughes yesterday, the whole "warning" system doesn't make a lot of sense.

So Hughes throws inside at Donaldson and both teams get warnings, next pitch Stroman throws inside gets him ejected, whether it's intentional or not?

MLB saying they'll stop making teams throw pitches on an intentional walk, as early as next season.

I find that really dumb.

Fight with Ventura and Manny last night. Sketchy pitch. Sucks a suspension is coming for Manny, interested to see if Ventura gets any sort of fine or suspension. Seemed like he was pushing the limits on the pitches up until he hit him, which looked intentional.

Both are repeat offenders and should get big suspensions.  Ventura could get 20 games, Machado 10-15.

That stuff happens all the time to Buck's teams since he seems to condone it. I have a strong dislike for his "brand" of baseball.

Lol....love the haters.

I'm guessing Manny gets 3-5 games.

I'd be pretty sore too if someone nailed me with a 99 mph pitch. Manny got a good crack in at his mug before they went to the ground.

Confirmed: 4 games, $2,500. Most likely appealed and dropped to 3 games

Ventura misses 1 start. Doesn't make sense. MLB almost wants brawls and beanballs.

I agree in that it doesn't make sense about Ventura, but yes, I think MLB doesn't hate the "excitement" of the basebrawl. Shit.....unless you're a diehard like we are, that sport can be boring as hell. I would imagine, for ratings purposes, they want all the excitement they can get to draw more viewers.

Well it's all fun until a guy misses a season or has his career ended after being plunked by a 95mph fastball...

As long as it's "part of the game," those same players who are at the greatest risk aren't necessarily gonna be at the head of the line of people demanding it go away.

Never ceases to amaze me the amount of press Boston and NY teams get. Sawx/yanks aren't in first, yet they continue to get the lion's share of coverage on ESPN and MLB Network.

Cracks me up. This race is far from over, but how about some love for Baltimore and Toronto?

Only good thing about the Yankees is that hopefully Chapman will be a Cub. We need a stronger bull pen. Badly.
