Ian Kinsler suspended for one game

Sep 14, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

Being suspended is sorta social. Demented and sad, but social.

When you get kicked out of a game, you can’t come back on the field to celebrate a walkoff home run. Ian Kinsler didn’t follow that rule this past Friday, however, and as a result he’s been suspended one game.

Man, I hope no one hits a walkoff homer the day he serves his suspension. He may not be able to restrain himself:

Kinsler: Yay!

Selig: You just bought yourself another game, mister!

Kinsler: Well, I’m free the game after that, but beyond that I’m gonna have to check my calendar.

Selig: Good, because it’s gonna be filled. We’ll keep goin’. You want another? Just say the word. Just say the word!  Instead of going to prison, you’ll come here!  Are you though?

Kinsler: No!

Selig: I’m doin’ society a favor!

Kinsler: So?

Selig: That’s another one, right now!  I’ve got you for the rest of your natural born life if you don’t watch your step!  You want another one?

Kinsler: Yes!

Selig: You though?

Kinsler: Not even close . . . BUD!

    Selig as Principal Vernon works pretty well…but it’s hard to see Kinsler as Bender.
    Either way, well done.

    Further proof that Sir Bud would have made a great DMV employee, but not such a good commish

    That’s an obscure rule I wasn’t aware of. I guess it makes sense, in a typical MLB sort of way.

    Great. Now I have to go watch that–maybe on Saturday morning. Thanks a lot, Craig!!!!!

    C’mon Craig. Show Dick some respect.

    I was really happy that you were gone for so long. Shame you’re back. Sorry, Craig. Had to do it…
