Yorvit Torrealba intends to make a vigorous appeal

Jun 16, 2010, 5:11 PM EDT

Earlier I passed along word that Padres’ catcher Yorvit Torrealba has been suspended for three games.  Not exactly the biggest story on the planet. MLB.com caught with him a few minutes ago, however, and it sounds as though Torrealba’s appeal will at least be interesting:


“It might be five days after what I say.”

I’m still having a hard time seeing what in the video of his ejection justified Torrealba’s anger at the time, and I’m seeing less in there that would justify some “And Justice for All”-style rant at his appeal.

But hey, it’ll be fun if he does go nutso, eh?
