Baseball is so soft and backwards.

Also: the only other sport where this event sort of happens is hockey. And at least those guys are allowed to fight.

It's a COVID side effect, Manfred last year they were gonna drop the hammer on anyone starting poo poo since they didn't want teams mixing it up.

Has there been an update on Kershaw, was he in pain or something? Even after giving up 4 runs kinda odd to pull him after the 1st on a day when you have a double header.

Sounds like he's fine. https://www.mlb.com/news/clayton-kershaw-makes-shortest-career-start-vs-cubs The Dodgers have been babying some of their pitchers this year, in terms of workload. They don't use Kenley Jansen in back to back games, for example.

Possibly a brainfart from seeing 25 names on the lineup card and not remembering you've got 26 players on the MLB roster these days? Yeesh.

Yeah, but it's not like he's ever been suspended for 20 games for blindsiding Oskar Sundqvist's head during a pre-season game. I guess these days that'd only get him fined 5k.

Also, didn't Wilson only get the fine for punching Buchnevich and not actually get anything for suplexing Panarin? To bring this back to baseball, I guess he's got that child-groomer Roger Clemens mojo of being able to throw a bat at someone he beaned and not get in any real trouble for it.

I know starting pitchers get seven-game suspensions as the equivalent of a one-game so theyíre actually forced to miss a start and the team canít be tricky, but is the same practice used for bullpen dudes?

It isn't really useful to compare the sports, the problem is that the NHL management is full of fat old Canadian guys who grew up on leaded gasoline and love brain injuries.

the cubs and dodgers just played an insane, epic 9-inning game that was considered "extras" because it was the second game of a double-header. Probably the best ad for the new formats, it was insane and intense for 3 full innings with a bunch of last-second homers and gutsy pitching performances. I'm still not sold.

There was a website with the "NHL Wheel of Justice" where you'd spin a wheel of fortune and it'd land on any punishment from "hockey play" to "season suspension." You could switch it into playoff mode, which meant half the spaces were "hockey play" and the max suspension was 2 games.

The zombie runner didnít even matter. In every inning where the zombie scored, he scored for both teams.
