Suspensions for Rays and Yankees

The heater is reporting that suspensions will be handed down shortly for Yankees Shelley Duncan and the Rays Jonny Gomes. Duncan will get three games, while Gomes will get two games. In the latest development, it was discovered that Melky Cabrera hit Evan Longoria in the back of the head during the benches clearing fiasco. Cabrera will be hit with a three game suspension. Yankees Manager Joe Girardi and two Yankee coaches Kevin Long and Bobby Meachem will be fined.

Expect Joe Girardi to also be fined by Rays president Matt Silverman for this comment.

“I’m trying to move on,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “Shelley’s play was aggressive. I don’t think he was trying to hurt anybody. Other people may see it another way. He’s going to have to play against the Devil Rays one day."

That will be one dollar, Joe.

The two teams play a split squad game tomorrow in Tampa. Gomes, Longoria and Elliot Johnson will stay behind. Manager Joe Maddon:

"There's no reason to send Jon out over there right now, I think it's the wrong thing to do based on the recent events,'' Maddon said. "He'll get his chance to play against them but for right now until this thing settles down I thought it was the appropriate thing to do.''

I'll be waiting for the first Yankee fan to call Jonny scared for "not showing up" like him and Duncan are going to fight at 3:00 after school.

In some sad news, the comeback and career of LHP Brian Anderson are over. Anderson walked off the mound on Wednesday after feeling something come loose in his elbow. An MRI revealed Anderson tore his UCL and will need to undergo a third Tommy John Surgery. At age 35, and three TJ Surgerys later, it's almost impossible to think Anderson would attempt another comeback. He will probably go back to a career in television.
