Baseball’s #1 Unwritten Rule: You don’t mention a No Hitter while it’s in progress
Baseball’s #2 Unwritten Rule: Someone beans one of your guys, you get revenge

See how that rule’s pretty high up there? Yeah, me too. That’s why I’m totally confused about MLB’s ridiculous decision to suspend A.J. Burnett for 6 games when all he did was buzz someone in retaliation for Mark Teixera being beaned twice in 3 innings.

Dear MLB,
You wants fans to keep the tradition alive, still love baseball, still teach their son’s how to hit a ball and cheer for a team? How about you keep up your end of the bargin and don’t pull shit like this? You can get back to me on that one.

A.J. Burnett gets six-game ban for throwing at Rangers’ Nelson Cruz Tuesday.

A.J. Burnett was suspended six games and fined $2,000 for throwing intentionally at Nelson Cruz of the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Burnett threw a pitch toward Cruz’s head in the fifth inning, a pitch that Major League Baseball believed was in retaliation for Vicente Padilla hitting Mark Teixeira twice earlier in the game.

Burnett has appealed his suspension, meaning he will likely be on the mound for his scheduled start on Sunday against the Rays.

Padilla was not suspended, but he was fined for throwing at Teixeira in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game.
