I love that the Sox are using the rules this way, but I hate that they can do it.

The Union currently pwns MLB.

He should have dropped it immediately following tonights game so he is gone during the Pirate series.

well, he pitched 1.2 innings yesterday, so the odds of him being used tonight were slim anyway.

The appeal process was instituted by MLB long ago, when the MLBPA voiced a concern over players not being able to give their side of a story in a suspension case, it was not insisted on by the MLBPA.

And he pitched an inning in the first game of the series.

Ahh well, take a break after a good couple of games. Go out on a high note. Does anyone know if Cliff Polite will be back soon?

Obviously he going to come back soon. I would rather have him gone, not that Montero is anything to gawk at.

How are the rules being "bent"? The Sox (or any other team that appeals) isn't doing anything wrong.

I'm not saying it's wrong but it's like telling your kid that he is grounded from television for a day but he says, "Okay. How about Friday because there's nothing I watch anyways?"

The sox knew that they weren't going to go through with the appeal. They just used the system to serve it when it is most convenient for the club. You shouldn't get to pick when you pay your punishment.

Damn, why couldn't I use the appeal process when I was a kid and about to get a spanking? :whiner: I could of just waited until right after I did something good:?: . I'll take my spanking now ... No johnny I'll just give you a warning ... and a cookie:redneck . Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
