Yadier Molina: Suspended for one game

Lovullo, Molina receive one-game suspensions

Lovullo, Molina receive one-game suspensions

It's absolutely ridiculous that Major League Baseball made a decision to hand St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina a one-game suspension Tuesday for his part in an altercation with Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo. It's the principle behind the matter, and Major League Baseball failed to serve proper justice to the cowardly remarks of Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo.

Molina has elected to appeal his suspension and will be in the lineup for St. Louis on Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. He can continue to play until the process is complete. But if the umpire would have let Yadi get by him and pop Lovullo in the mouth a time or two after what he said, I'm pretty sure the Arizona manager wouldn't do the same thing twice. Lovullo will miss Tuesday night's game at San Francisco and was fined an undisclosed amount.

Somehow, only Lovullo was ejected from the game.

The Cardinals catcher took exception to Lovullo's actions, leading to both benches clearing and briefly delaying the game. Lovullo argued with Timmons, saying a called third strike on Arizona's A.J. Pollock was influenced by the All-Star catcher's pitch framing.

Yadi deserves no sort of suspension, but if you're going to sit him for one game, then Luvollo's suspension needs to be much more severe. You'd think Molina would've also been ejected for going after Lovullo, and you'd *especially* think Molina would be ejected for shoving an umpire.

Lovullo said the remark wasn't meant to be directed at Molina. Molina stepped aside as Lovullo ran out to argue balls and strikes so he had no part in the beef whatsoever.
