Bucs up 3-2 in the seventh with the bases juiced for Jonezilla.
Jonathan Sanchez has been suspended by MLB for six games. No word yet on whether the Bucs will appeal for a longer sentence.
Hopefully the gym bag is not waterlogged.
The Firm of Sanchez & Gomez has filed an appeal with the 1st Appellate Court of the suspension.They are experienced litigators and won't go down without a fight.
Thankfully, the gym bag was sprayed with silicon before the game and the rain just rolled off it.
After the two jacks, Sanchez was obviously intentionally trying to kill or injure a man - that's easily grounds for a six month suspension. He needs to take some time off to cool down before somebody gets seriously injured.

Wandy in to pinch-hit and singles? Can Wandy play second base?
Matheny and his mound repairs can go get his shinebox. Good answer to a bizarro game last night that cost us some personnel. Crowd is so quiet in St. Louis the seats are numbered with the Dewey Decimal System. The might as well rent DVDs while they are there, like those Wall-E style cruise ship passengers up at Great American in Cincinnati.
