D-backs take to Twitter in response to brawl penalties
JUN 14, 2013 12:36p ET
FOX Sports Arizona's Todd Walsh will be in the clubhouse at Petco Field later this afternoon, and we'll bring you reaction from the Diamondbacks both here at FOXSportsArizona.com and on our Diamondbacks Live! pre-game show starting at 7 a.m.
FOXSportsArizona.com's Jack Magruder will also be on-site to provide all the details, reaction and analysis, so be sure to check back closer to game time.
In the meantime, it's safe to say that the Diamondbacks are none too pleased with the distribution of penalties between the two teams. We know that because of Twitter, which is our only conduit to their thoughts.
Here's an unfiltered sampling, presented without editorial comment.
So the guys that weren't throwing punches got bigger suspensions than the guys that did. #MakesSense— David Hernandez (@DHern_30) June 14, 2013
Again, I'll say this: I have no problem w Kennedy's pre-appeal suspension. It's the others (or lack thereof) that are a joke.— Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013
So if you throw punches when the benches clear, you get fined. You get sucker punched, you get suspended five games. Makes sense #not— Daniel Hudson (@DHuddy41) June 14, 2013
Have you ever watched people who are bad at math try to split a bill? Basically that's how I picture the process of deciding brawl penalties— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013
Hinske's had the soup and ended up paying for someone else's surf & turf— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013
"I had him in fantasy once and he killed me so...five games?"- how I assume someone from MLB decided on Hinske's suspension— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 14, 2013
Hinske, who drew a 5-game ban, was described by #Dodgers players as a "peacemaker" and "punching bag."— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) June 14, 2013
Crock of crap about MLBs suspension of Eric Hinske! I smell an appeal. Hell, Dodger players are defending him!— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) June 14, 2013
#FreeHinske is trending right now in Arizona I love it!!!— Tyler Skaggs (@TylerSkaggs37) June 14, 2013
It's a joke that throwing at someone is viewed as so much worse than running off the bench, tackling people, and throwing haymakers.— Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013
MLB must've used the replay technology from Cleveland to review the brawl, bc they sure missed a lot of what was happening in the scuffle.— Brad Ziegler (@BradZiegler) June 14, 2013
