      I saw the maylay but didn't see the specific contact. When 40 guys are pushing, shoving, and jumping around, it may be hard to not contact others. What I'm saying is, was the contact an accident or intentional?

            Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

              Important to note that it is 3 regular season games. Even if the suspension stands, if he can't complete it this year, it will roll over to 2022 and not into the post-season.

                TA's tweet on this speaks for me.

                  Well, the Tigers got what they were after - consequences for the White Sox. If we didn't still have a half-a-prayer of passing Houston for the 2-seed (and damn the Rays bullpen for yesterday, btw! ), I'd say let's forfeit the last three games against Detroit, lest those guys attempt more shenanigans. Funny how you can change the players, change the manager, but they're still the same old Tigers pulling the same old ****.

                    Am I the only one who can't find any video of this? Am I missing something?

                        Looks to me like the ump leaned into Tim before anything I can see as flagrant occurs. Don't big time and lean in on a guy if you aren't ready to get pushed back. Ump can...

                          While I agree the ump looked like he was being confrontational, you still can't push him back. 3 games seems excessive though, so hopefully it'll be reduced. What sucks is that this means TA likely won't be in the lineup for opening day next year.

                          Here's my favorite take so far on the situation:

                            Would he be allowed to attend the pre-game ring ceremony?
