Bryce Harper charges mound; how many games will he be suspended?




Strickland hit Harper with a pitch. These two have a bit of history. Harper has several suspensions on his record.

2. Should be zero---that punkass pitcher threw at him

because all Harper does is take him deep.

Harper connects:

8. I agree

I no longer watch baseball, but that was painfully obvious. You would like to do a substitution for a position player the next inning Strickland comes up and bring a scrub fire baller in to pitch to only him while moving your pitcher to a position. Move your pitcher back on the mound once Strickland (or the injury substitute) takes his base.

10. A couple comments from real baseball people.

Ryan Zimmerman, who Bochy screwed out of an All Star appearance because a gluttonous baby (Panda) whined about being snubbed 2 years earlier:




And this is what happened in one sentence:

11. This is Bryce Harper's second ejection this year....

bringing his tally to eight career ejections. Dude is only 24 years old so he may break some sort of MLB record before he hangs up his spikes.

15. When you consider the relief pitcher rotation, one could make the argument Harper and Strickland

were more or less equally dinged.

16. Not Even Close, Buzz

It's been adjusted to 3 for Harper, but that's 27 innings for a position player. Strickland is likely to miss on 3 or 4 innings of work.

Since Strickland is the instigator with his dumbass 3 year old grudge, he's getting off too lightly.

17. You're correct, but it's worse

Statistically, Strickland will miss a whopping 2.0 innings of work

On the bright side in this mess, the idiot, Madison Bumgarner has started throwing, no, tossing the ball again. He looked so spastic throwing, it has been suggested that Hunter Pence has be coaching him. They say he'll be able to begin catching the ball on Friday, so there's that.

My Giants suck this season

19. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool National League fan

When my team is in the toilet, I shift my eyes to another National League team. The Cubs have been my default team for years, but it looks like Dusty Baker's team, the Nationals, may just go all the way. California native, Dusty Baker really, really wants to win a pennant as a manager so he can permanently retire with satisfaction, then watch his son play for UC Berkeley.

20. Interestingly, Buzz. . .

. . . as a kid i picked a favorite AL team just because hardly anybody here is both a Cubs and Sox fan. So, i picked the Kansas City A's and i stayed loyal all these years after they moved to Oakland. So, my favorite AL team is across the water from your favorite team!

21. As a kid, I heard stories about the Kansas City A's changing their mascot to a mule because....

they used livestock to mow their outfield, and I believed it.

The Oakland A's put on a good show, but my loyalty to the Giants goes back to the Seals Stadium days. Fond memories of the strong bakery and brewery smells in the air.

It was 65 or 66 and I was 9 or 10. That'll happen

22. I'm not a Giants fan,

but it seems messed up to me how Harper was the one who started the fight, but Strickland got a harsher punishment. Also it was interesting that Posey was reluctant to do anything. Maybe he feared retaliation or suspension.

23. Buster Posey initially took a lot of heat for his inaction....

But the keener minds are slowly starting the credit him for doing the right thing.

25. Hold The Phone

Strickland intentionally hits a guy with a 97 mph fastball because he hit two homers off him 3 years ago. And Harper started it?
