The Day After
Weds lineup vs. STL
I don’t suspect we’ll hear anything about MLB rendered discipline until late today, or Thursday. So it appears status quo from the Reds, for now.
Here is what Dusty Baker said about the prospect of suspensions:
“Hey man, I don’t think it’s even fair to print or anticipate or even say about losing guys. That’s kind of like setting the sentence before somebody went to trial. It’s like ‘how many years will you get in jail?’ Who says you will get to jail? I just hope the guys up there realize the tension, the pressure and background. You also can’t just go on what you see on the video because you don’t know what was said or what was done. You have to beware of the first man’s testimony until the second man comes forward. The first man always sounds innocent until the second man testifies.”
“Sometimes you know they claim no punches were thrown. There were words that created punches to be thrown. You know what I mean? Not that what happened was right on our side or what was said was right. There’s always a cause and effect on every situation almost. In our hearts that thing was over, until some people started talking.”
