As you learned earlier this afternoon, Major League Baseball doled out suspensions as expected for the Dodgers' and Diamondbacks' participation in Tuesday night's fracas. There weren't too many surprises, though as Craig noted, Yasiel Puig and Zack Greinke were not suspended at all, receiving only fines. On the D-Back side of things, Eric Hinske received a five-game suspension, which was shocking both to Hinske himself and to teammate Brandon McCarthy, who tweeted about it:
According to Deadspin, Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick doesn't want your money. Okay, so that's my conclusion. But still, the events that transpired in last night's opening game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chase Field make very little sense.
UPDATE (4/17/2013): Apparently Deadspin got in touch with members of the group who sat behind home. First off, I apologize for jokingly proclaiming them to be unloyal fans for caving to Kendrick's wishes.
Both the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks will be celebrating Italian Day when they face each on July 1st. To celebrate, both will be wearing Italian-themed jersey.
Courtesy of Uni-Watch, here are the two jerseys:
This is a very interesting concept for both teams. The jerseys take from the color of the Italian flag, which makes sense. (And I wonder if the caps will be the same.) I wonder if these are just for batting practice or for the actual game.
