Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Aug 1, 2019 9:55 pm

Major League Baseball on Thursday suspended six players and both managers for their roles in the benches-clearing brawl between the Pirates and Reds on Tuesday night.

Reds manager David Bell (six games) and pitchers Amir Garrett (eight games) and Jared Hughes (three games) were disciplined. Yasiel Puig, who acknowledged after Tuesday\'s game that he had been traded to the Indians before Wednesday\'s official announcement, was suspended for three games.

Pirates pitcher Keone Kela got the longest ban at 10 games for \"intentionally\" throwing a pitch near the head of the Reds\' Derek Dietrich and later instigating the brawl. Teammates Jose Osuna (five games) and Kyle Crick (three games) and manager Clint Hurdle (two games) also were disciplined by MLB.

Another perfect storm for the Mets, who are on a 7 game winning streak and play the pirates next.

From what I heard there should have been a hundred games or more of suspensions. Anybody who intentionally throws a baseball at the head of a player should be subject to criminal charges.
