The long arm of MLB law reached out Friday and handed Michael Barrett a ten game suspension
and an undisclosed fine. The only other player suspended for the fracas was White Sox outfielder Brian Anderson. Barrett rightfully appealed the suspension and will play in today's game versus the Braves. Hopefully MLB won't get around to hearing the appeal until Lee is back and hopefully MLB will reduce the suspension to a more appropriate 7 to 8 games.
And if you want to be really annoyed by Andy McPhail, feel free and read this interview
with the Trib. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the 3 day weekend, just avoid that link.
[UPDATE:] Tony Womack called up, Ryan Theriot sent down.
I don't even have a joke here, actually I do, it's the previous sentence.
