Thread: "Sucker punch" Sanchez suspension

  1. #16
    Fighting ain't too good for my game if Chris Sale takes a swing at someone and breaks his hand.

    Or if a Yankee drills his shoulder into the ground.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Still waiting on the appeal.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR

    That's why you have a guy like Mo Vaughn at 1B or Varitek at C.

    Just change the jersey and replace the first E with an A.

    The Yankees could go 0-162 and it wouldn't be enough

    That was the end of Lee as a consistently good pitcher. I think he had one more good season years later in Montreal.

    Because of Labor Day weekend the appeal ruling won't come until Tuesday. How convientient, the Sox will already be out of town. "Sucker Punch"'s suspension will probably take place against a team that they could afford to miss him against.

    I'm not even sure why you're worried about it frankly. You've split the last two games and have Sale going tomorrow. You're up 5 in the L column and if your team takes care of its business the rest of the month, you'll clinch with a week to go. He deserves some games for sure. Knocking out someone for 4 games during the final month of a pennant race for the most popular team in baseball may not be the best idea from an organizational perspective but so be it. He was a bozo and deserves his punishment.

    I'm not a big fan of fighting in sports in general. I understand it though and I love the fact that these guys still have passion. I just hope that if we ever get involved in a good old fashioned ass kicker it is over something more significant that someone bunting to take advantage of an opponent's weakness or a hard swing and a miss at a pitched ball. I think that maybe we are getting just a little too soft these days.

    Tigers appeals were dealt with Friday and serving of suspensions began yesterday.

    But Sanchez and Romine not decided yet...surprise surprise.
