Quick note. Both Tyler Austin and Joe Kelly had suspensions handed down to them for their glorious brawl the other night.  This is really not a detailed post... I just wanted to show more pictures and the video again.

The Boston Globe writes:

"Sox pitcher Joe Kelly was suspended for six games by MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Tyler Austin in the seventh inning. Austin was suspended five games and fined for charging the mound and fighting. Both players appealed their suspensions and will be available to play until their cases are heard.

MLB also fined Sox manager Alex Cora and Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin.

Four players on the disabled list who went onto the field — Xander Bogaerts, Marco Hernandez and Dustin Pedroia of the Sox and Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia — also were fined."

By the way, love this play by play:

And I loved and appreciated that injured teammates ran out too. Shows unity.

Anyway... a news update and there you have it!

Be Read. Get Known.
