Today the big news is the witch hunt, err "investigation." But I also find the Tavarez suspension a bit curious. Its touched on a bit in the story, that Julian gets 10 days, but with the off days it is just 8 games. And of course if he appeals, they will likely reduce the suspension to 8 games, which is essentially the same (except of course the extra toll on the bullpen with a lack of off days).
So the shenanigans are, why 10 days? With the exception of the steroid suspensions, since when did the commish hand out suspension in terms of days. last year Wells got six games for yelling at the ump. Nixon I think 5 games for his roll in the fight. A-Rod and Tek were suspended 4 games for the famous fight. so why now?
