I bet Red Sox fans are livid. Let these guys play ball. Brushbacks are part of the game.
I wouldn't necessarily say livid. I think he should just take the suspension. With rainouts and double headers, he and Lester can just swap their next starts.
i think the only reason he appealed it was to get time to figure out the best dates to be suspended.
Six games for a pitcher means he will only have to push back one start 2 days.
The bigger question is...WHY TO THE SOX FUCKING SUCK SO BADLY?
Pitching isn't there yet and they miss Manny.
Need to wake up bats.
I'm less than thrilled that they suspended him but to be honest, Beckett threw that ball at him and he threw it hard. Abreu had already stepped out of the box a bit and the ball still whizzed by his face.
You know ... I've been thinking ...
How can they suspend Beckett and not Hatcher, Soiscia, Hunter, and Speier when Beckett didn't even get ejected from the game but the latter 4 did?
Beckett should win this appeal.
Beckett's getting screwed. He didn't even hit Abreu, and also didn't even get ejected.
So where's the justification for a suspension, much less 6 games?
Kuroda and Myers didn't get ejected or suspended for doing the same exact thing in the NLCS.
