    We know you think he’ll get 6-10 games. What do you think he SHOULD get, if you were commish? Does 6 games really act as either a deterrent or a punishment?

    It’s funny how things have changed. Machado needs to be sanctioned. That said, as a kid I saw a game on tv where Minnie Minoso was nearly hit high and tight by a Yankee pitcher. On the next pitch Minnie took a vicious swing and let the bat go. Unlike Machado, Minnie was accurate and the bat went at the pitcher like a spinning scythe. It didn’t hit him but the pitcher had to jump out of the way. Minoso strolled out towards the mound with a smug look on his face and retrieved his bat. No tossing of anyone, no bullpens on the field, the game went on without further incident, and no suspensions.

    Not sure he has “cool” to lose.

    I would’ve rather seen him run out to the mound with the bat in his hands, a’la Jose Offerman.
