The Arizona Diamondbacks franchise should be fined, and their manager should be suspended for 5 games.  Soon MLB has to institute a head rule, you bean a guy on the shoulder or above, the manager is immediately ejected and the starter gets fined lets say 5k for the first infraction.  All subsequent violations result in an additional 5k added on.  So a 2nd headshot costs the pitcher 10k, 15 for a 3rd and so on. If you want to throw at a guy to back him off the plate or make him uncomfortable, I have no problem with a ball to the booty, or thigh to send a message.  However intentional or not, a ball that hits Yasiel Puig in the nose is over the line, that just missed hitting his face.

Diamondbacks on the mend continue to progress

Karma Does Matt Kemp Solid With an Assist From Olivia Munn

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is living, breathing proof that when you do good things good things will in turn happen to you. Remember when he met a young man that was suffering from a terminal illness and game him his game jersey, hat, and cleats? Did you know that he also flew the young man--Joshua Jones--out to LA and introduced him to a lot of the guys on the...

Los Angeles Dodgers newest star sees stars during an ugly night

Appealing his suspension, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy will start on Sunday against the Padres in San Diego

Set to appeal his 10-game suspension for inciting a brawl with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy will start on Sunday against the Padres in San Diego. For throwing a heater at Zack Greinke’s noggin, the 28-year-old Kennedy (3-4, 5.49 ERA) deservedly received the longest ban of anyone scrapping. Still, provided Arizona (37-29) structures their rotation...

Do Guggenheim Dodgers Have $ To Land Cano?

The Guggenheim Group that now owns the Los Angeles Dodgers could be in for a big cash windfall.

Dodgers-D’Backs Brawl Incited with One Extra Unnecessary Beanball

We talk about the “old-school” a lot on this blog. Heck, we harken back to the days where it was “OK to throw inside.” So, this is not going to be a debate about unwritten baseball rules. We’re perfectly alright with how folks handle their guys getting hit. It may seem ridiculous to then apply “logic” to unwritten rules that so many view as bunk to begin with…but...
