Suspensions were announced today for last week's brawl. Michael Barrett's, as expected, was 10 games. No other Cub was suspended.
However, expect Barrett to appeal, so any suspension will likely be delayed for several weeks.
Apropos of nothing, but I had to show you guys this, you've got to check out this post at Federal Baseball about yesterday's Nationals/Astros game. Hilarious!
In the meantime, there's a game to be played at Wrigley Field today.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Tim Hudson has faced the Cubs only once: last August 22, also against Z, a game the Cubs played well until Kerry Wood (in relief) gave up a two-run HR to Chipper Jones in the 9th, his second two-run HR of the game.
Jacque Jones, who faced Hudson often in the AL, is 9-for-29 lifetime against him, with 2 HR.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
