Papelgone: Suspended

As predicted, MLB has sided with the umpires and handed down a three-game suspension to Jonathan Papelbon this week. That's what you get for bumping an umpire. He is appealing his first career suspension, which made him eligible to pitch last night. I'll get into the details of the game in my next post, but I'll say that he was needed, and he was able to record his 200th career save. In your face, Tony Randazzo.

Seems a little ridiculous that Nate Horton gets nearly decapitated by that Rome guy on the Canucks, and Rome only gets a four game suspension. Papelbon slightly bumps the umpire and gets three games. Where is the justice?
