10 for Barrett, 5 for Lee and 3 for Mabry. The White Sox will learn who gets suspended tomorrow. My guess is Brian will get 5 or 10 and Pods 3.

Barrett got off pretty cheap.

If BA gets the same as Barrett, there is something wrong. Ah, yes that something is Unclue Bud.

What did Lee do?:?:

Mabry looked like he was trying to seperate guys and BA swung at him.

You know he will. He went crazy and took a few punches at Mabry and then threw him to the ground. That's why Barrett should have gotten 15 because he actually made contact with his punch and A.J. had no clue it was coming.

And we all know there suspensions will be reduced when they are appealed and spineless Selig gives in.

Yea. Really the only suspensions should be Barrett and BA. But MLB will **** this up, as usual.

Assuming this is Derek Lee I think you are not allowed to leave the bench for any reason if you are not part of the 25 man active roster.

Gagne received a few game suspension for merely barking something to the umpire while in the dugout (though not part of the active roster) during a game last year against the Giants IIRC.

I don't think Anderson deserves as high a suspension as Barrett simply because he was merely reacting vs. starting the incident.

I'd say Anderson gets 5 or 6 games and Podsednik 3. It will be interesting to see if AJ is fined anything. In the latest incident before this one (Kendall attacking John Lackey), Kendall was suspended 3 or 4 games IIRC and Lackey was fined $2,000 but not suspended for merely being on the receiving end of a jackass opponents physical assault.

I wouldn't be surprised if he got 3 games. Which will lead to a fun appeal where any objective third party would laugh in MLB's face at suspending a guy who took a punch and did nothing else.

Yes but your are forgetting the fact AJ went to get his batting helmet and is really responsible for the entire incident when you think about it based on his reputation (enter Windsock article here).

Seriously, though, I would pay good money to see an objective 3rd party hear an appeal if he does actually get suspended. Just to see Unclue Bud ripped to shreds would be worth it!

A.J. and Anderson were involved in the preceding play, and Podsednik was in the On Deck Circle. They all belonged on the field when Barrett physically assaulted A.J.

Lee wasn't even on the Cubs roster and had no business on that field.

You can't blame Podsednik for restraining Barrett after he just witnessed Barrett attacking his teammate.

The Anderson/Mabry incidents were unfortunate. I don't think either one of them deserve any suspension.

Only one person deserves a suspension for starting the whole thing. Barrett should have gotten 20 games.

Take it for what it's worth, but SoxTalk says that someone on the DL is not allowed to go on the field, which would make more sense for Lee, but they also brought up a good point wondering if Contreras went on the field, which would suck if he got punished. Maybe a fine for both the DL guys but suspension is stupid imo

Can Podsednik get suspended when he didn't get ejected? I can't figure this out. Rule 9.05 makes it sound like only a "disqualified" [ejected] individual can be fined or suspended. Anyone clarify?

9.05
The umpire shall report to the Office of the Commissioner within 12 hours after the end of a game all violations of rules and other incidents worthy of comment, including the disqualification of any trainer, manager, coach or player, and the reasons therefore.
When any trainer, manager, coach or player is disqualified for a flagrant offense such as the use of obscene or indecent language, or an assault upon an umpire, trainer, manager, coach or player, the umpire shall forward full particulars to the Office of the Commissioner within four hours after the end of the game.
After receiving the umpire's report that a trainer, manager, coach or player has been disqualified, the Office of the Commissioner shall impose such penalty as it deems justified, and shall notify the person penalized and the manager of the club of which the penalized person is a member. If the penalty includes a fine, the penalized person shall pay the amount of the fine to the Office of the Commissioner within five days after receiving notice of the fine. Failure to pay such fine within five days shall result in the offender being debarred from participation in any game and from sitting on the players' bench during any game, until the fine is paid.

It mentioned on the Score pregame this morning that D. Lee could get suspended for getting involved in the fight while on the DL. Of course, if I'm an important cog in the wheel of my team and my wrist is a little weak from a recent fracture, I would not be dumb enough to get into a brawl with about 15 guys.

I guess that is why Hendry never calls me.

If AJ gets suspended, they need to suspend the ESPN's baseball commentators who were on last night. "Pierzynski dabbled in the WWE last year."

Idiots. Get your facts straight before going on the air.

You're completely wrong. According to the guy on the score this morning, it was all Matt Murton's fault for throwing a ball that hopped in the grass.

Yeah, but A.J. didn't do anything wrong.

He reportedly was ejected by the umps just as a precaution to maintain order. The official reason will probably be for being "involved" in the altercation, but no suspension would be justified.

Anderson threw a punch at Barrett and connected on his way in from 1st base. I can see it clearly on the tape I have of the game and I am sure MLB has multiple angles that are of much better quality. If Barrett is indeed getting 15 games BA is probably going to get 10 if not more.

Precaution? Well, then, I guess Barrett should have been ejected before Sunday's game. That would have avoided having to worry about retailiation.

Seriously, they ejected Pierzynski because they made a mistake. It happens. Now the question is, will MLB admit it or attempt to cover it up with some bogus suspension?

I don't believe you're allowed to call anyone up since the player is still technically on the roster- he just can't play. I think you can do it if a player is out on bereavement leave (didn't Willie Harris have that issue within the last couple of years?), but not during a suspension.

Lee, I believe, gets an automatic suspension for being on the field while being on the DL.

Derrek was on the bench and he came onto the field during the brawl. Since he is not on the active roster, he has NO business on the field.
