Found June 14, 2013 on Fox Sports Arizona:
We'll have more for you later today on reaction to the punishment handed down by Major League Baseball for Tuesday night's brawl between the Diamondbacks and the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. FOX Sports Arizona's Todd Walsh will be in the clubhouse at Petco Field later this afternoon, and we'll bring you reaction from the Diamondbacks both here at and on our Diamondbacks Live! pre-game show starting at 7 a.m.'s Jack Magruder will also be on-site to provide all the details, reaction and analysis, so be sure to check back closer to game time. In the meantime, it's safe to say that the Diamondbacks are none too pleased with the distribution of penalties between the two teams. We know that because of Twitter, which is our only conduit to their thoughts. Here's an unfiltered sampling, presented without editorial comment. Again, I'll say this: I have no problem w Kennedy's pre-appeal suspension. It's the others (or lack thereof) that are a joke. Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013 We got hosed on the suspensions. Where they watching the same game that we were? confused headlocksandhaymakers Adam Eaton (@AdamSpankyEaton) June 14, 2013 So if you throw punches when the benches clear, you get fined. You get sucker punched, you get suspended five games. Makes sense not Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) June 14, 2013 Have you ever watched people who are bad at math try to split a bill? Basically that's how I picture the process of deciding brawl penalties Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013 Hinske's had the soup and ended up paying for someone else's surf & turf Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013 "I had him in fantasy once and he killed me so...five games?"- how I assume someone from MLB decided on Hinske's suspension Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013 It's a joke that throwing at someone is viewed as so much worse than running off the bench, tackling people, and throwing haymakers. Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013 MLB must've used the replay technology from Cleveland to review the brawl, bc they sure missed a lot of what was happening in the scuffle. Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013 DBacks Hinske appealing. Unreal, cant believe it, he said. Source said he hit Dodgers Puig first. Hinskes reply: Watch the video.
