Excuse my hurried post, but I just downloaded a four day trial of Rocket League and I can certainly see the appeal. Look ma! I scored a goal! Speaking of appeals (I’m so good at this), Manny Machado is in the lineup for tonight, so it would appear that he’s officially appealing his suspension, which according to reports 4 game long.
The length of the suspension does indeed make a statement considering Rougned Odor recently received a much longer suspension for punching Jose Bautista. So far no suspension for Yordano Ventura has been leaked/announced. Suspensions are typically, but not always reduced on appeal.
Update: It appears that Ventura’s suspension has been announced, and it’s much lower than most people were expecting.
Remember that 9 games for a starting pitcher is basically 1 game. So, um, nice message there MLB. What will you do the next time Ventura decides to intentionally plunk a guy with a 99 mph fastball?
