Brandon Workman Appeals 6-Game Suspension

Major League Baseball handed down a ludicrous six-game suspension on Brandon Workman for "intentionally throwing" at Evan Longoria during PunkRaysGate last Friday. This, despite the fact that the only people who were actually hit that night were three Red Sox players. How Joe Torre and his 'gumshoes' did not find David Price equally guilty of intentionality is astounding. First, the rookie umps blew it, then Torre compounded the idiocy with the suspension on Workman. The right-hander is appealing the suspension and will start for Boston tomorrow night in Cleveland.
