Yet another reason MLB is run by mindless idiots - Padilla is fined, Burnett is suspended 6 games

I'm having a hard time understanding why Padilla--who hit Teixiera twice, seemingly on purpose--was fined for an undisclosed sum, whereas Burnett was suspended 6 games for throwing--and missing--at a hitter. It is quite clear to me that Padilla started this whole thing and Burnett was simply protecting his batters. The only justification for this I can remotely understand is that Mark got plunked in the butt & back, but Nelson Cruz received a "high and tight" pitch, closer to the face. Still, it boggles the mind that Vincente received no suspension (granted, he doesn't have a team at the moment). Furthermore, it is somewhat odd that Burnett is receiving the same suspension Carlos Zambrano received, and I do not perceive the two incidents to be on the same level of stupidity or detriment to Major League Baseball. Just another reason MLB head officials are mindless idiots. Dan
