Here's what Orioles pitcher Steve Kline said after being suspended:
"It's a joke. I've seen worse than what I did. ... Sheffield only gets two games and I get four for something I don't even know what I did yet? Go figure."
There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the method of MLB's suspensions. Earlier in the year Terry Francona was suspended because the Sox had a beanball war with the Devil Rays. I believe it was three days and he wasn't even allowed in the ball park. Later the Yankees were involved in beanball war, so Torre gets a two game suspension. Unlike Francona though, Torre is allowed in the ballpark, just not in the dugout.
