Noé Ramirez was fined and saddled with a 3 game suspension. For his “part” in the incident last night, Brad Ausmus was suspended for 1 game as well.
First, 3 games for Ramirez while Marisnick gets 2 for sending a catcher to the hospital? Second, why suspend Ausmus? The only reason is that you KNOW he ordered it (proof is unlikely), or you are sending a message that the manager will be held accountable if a pitcher throws at another player. I haven’t really done the research, but I wonder how many times pitchers have been suspended for throwing at guys in the last few years? Also I wonder, how many of them got 3 days? How many of them also saw the manager suspended?
Regardless, Ausmus will not be managing tonight’s game.
