  • How many game suspension if at all do you think Lawrie will get for slamming his....

    Tonight Lawrie slammed his helmet to the ground and it hit the ump. After the ump rung him up on some calls that i must admit were high and were some bad calls but none the less. But how many games if any will he get for a suspension. And then as the umps were walking off the Field a Jays fans threw a beer at the Ump.

    If the helmet hit the ump unintentionally I'm not sure a suspension is warranted. A hefty fine, yes, but not a suspension. If it was intentional, or if the helmet was spiked in the direction of the ump in a way where it might have been intentional, then yes, a suspension would definitely be in order--anywhere between 1-5 games would be my guess.

    I haven't seen the play, however.

        He'll see a decent suspension for that. And really he should...

          Yeah that's a suspension. Definitely threw it towards the ump.

          But maybe umps should miss games for sucking so bad.

          As for the beer shower. Oh well. Not something I would do, but he's not the first person at a ballpark to get doused in beer.

            You can't violently throw equipment in the direction of an umpire--let alone actually hitting him with it.

            I'd say at least 10 games w/o pay and and a $10,000+ fine.

            I hope Lawrie got $50,000 worth of satisfaction out of that because that's what his wallet's going to be missing. roof:

                In Lawrie's defense of being upset (not saying he should of acted like he did), that was one of the worst consecutive wrong call I've ever seen. The 2nd strike was in the same location as the first pitch which was called a ball and the ump waited about 4 seconds to call it. The 3rd strike was little better and was high. As the Rays commentators said, the ump would have called Lawrie out no matter where the last pitch was. Ump made the game about his vendetta instead of the players.

                    The video is conclusive; Lawrie is a spoiled little child having a temper tantrum because he didn't get his way.

                      why cant he just be a "fiery player who cared about winning the game so much that he let a bad/important call get the best of his anger at a bad time"

                      Why does one act of a helmet accidently hitting an umpire make him a spoiled childish brat?

                              That's only a yellow card.
                              Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                              If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.
