Harper suspended 4 games, Strickland suspended 6 games after brawl

Harper suspended 4 games, Strickland suspended 6 games after brawl

For Hunter Strickland, though, 965 days still wasn't enough. Grant wrote about it here and also here and Doug broke it down here. The slugger pointed his bat at Strickland, yelled at him and took off. Like, I was down, underneath and I just rolled [away]. Next time, Bryce, work on the helmet throw a little bit. Even in a loss, that would have been a victory. If that seems like a exhausted phrase, it's becoming an even more exhausted concept.

Francona went out to protect his pitcher, though he did not do a whole lot of good.

It's a story as old as electronic scoreboards - the guy who either decides to play the villain or has villainy thrust upon him, and decides to iron-jaw his way through the reaction. That his HBP ultimately scored a run was maybe the most literal earned run of all time. "It looked like it was intentional to me". Unless he plays for your team, he just isn't a likeable player. He has been around professional baseball for five decades and is aware some grudges last almost that long. Before we move on to the fight's many comedic components - from a sad helmet-throw to a DGAF catcher - here's some straight-forward video. I don't even think he should be thinking about what happened in the first round.

"We're ahead 2-0, two outs, nobody on base", Baker said.

Posey got a concussion last month from a beaning.

There are just so many indications that Strickland was the only one thinking about this as a revenge situation.

The league came down harder on Strickland, doling out a six-game suspension for the reliever. "You see Mike Morse and Jeff Samardzija are about as big as they come and he was getting knocked around like a pinball".

It won't be Strickland, because relief pitchers nearly never bat, and he certainly won't, which Strickland of course knows.

You knew some sort of discipline was coming for Harper and Strickland after Monday afternoon's on-field brawl in AT&T Park, which followed a 98 miles per hour goal pitch from Strickland directly to Harper's left hip. "One thing I've got to say about Strickland is he hit me in the right spot, so I do respect him for that", Harper said. It will be one of his teammates that has to take one in the ribs. I think the umpires handled it well. I thought it was awesome. What's telling is there wasn't a Giant who defended Strickland's action, either.

Give me a bad record, give me bad defensive mistakes, give me a million runners left in scoring position, give me dumb luck - I can defend all of that and probably will throughout this season.
