You know what they say, “What happens in the World Baseball Classic, stays in the World Baseball Classic.” Or is it “The first rule of the World Baseball Classic is don’t talk about Fight Club?” Seven players were ejected in Saturday’s WBC brawl, but that’s the only punishment they will face. The WBC announced “discipline will not be imposed beyond [Saturday's] seven game ejections,” according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports. Those seven players will not receive MLB suspensions. The seven players ejected were Boston’s Alfredo Aceves, Seattle’s Oliver Perez, Philadelphia’s Pete Orr and Jay Johnson, Oakland’s Arnold Leon, Milwaukee’s Rene Tosoni and Eduardo Arredondo. The brawl began when Mexico pitcher Leon hit Canada’s Tosoni with a pitch after Canada bunted with a 9-3 lead. Aceves, and the Red Sox, were lucky did won’t receive any league punishment for his involvement in the skirmish. However, this isn’t a good way for the Boston reliever to start his season. No one was surprised to hear of his involvement due to his fiery attitude and unpredictable behavior. Aceves, Perez and Orr all played in the major leagues last season. Aceves had a 5.36 ERA in 84 innings while pitching in 69 games. Perez was a reliever for the Mariners after spending most of his career as a starter. He had a 2.12 ERA in 29 2/3 innings. Orr had just 57 plate appearances in 35 games. He hit .315 with three stolen bases and seven RBIs. If the WBC is any prediction of the 2013 season, we could have an entertaining year from Aceves in front of us.
