Josh Beckett got suspended six games, and said he did not expect it. What did he think just because he was one of the best pitchers in baseball that MLB was going to ignore that he threw at a batters head and then moved towards the plate when Abreu did not charge the mound. Beckett is just lucky MLB did not nail him for ten games or so. He should have gotten tossed from the game the second that pitch flew over the batters head. No doubt he meant to do that, and you miss a bit and you hit a batter and things could be really bad.
The Bisons played another afternoon game, and lost again. Today the Bisons managed three runs, which is about the max you can expect from this team. So the Bisons record now falls to 1-6, which is worst in the IL. They are already 6 games out of first. So by the end of hte week I am guessing the playoffs will be out of the question. It is a very sad season when it is over before the team plays a road game.
