“Now it’s Creed! Now it’s Balboa!”

Alright Zach, let’s chill out with your Rocky excitement despite punches being thrown in Saturday’s Guardians/White Sox game at Progressive Field. Ended in a 7-4 loss…

We knew some punishments were to be laid down and the official rulings are here:

Tim Anderson: 6 games

Jose Ramirez: 3 games

Emmanuel Clase: 1 game

Terry Francona: 1 game

Pedro Grifol: 1 game

Mike Sarbaugh: 1 game

What I find most interesting about this is that the brawl was good for baseball as a whole. It drew attention to a sport that appears to be lacking in excitement with this generation.

Random Example: 50,000+ in attendance at the Eagles Open Practice for the NFL. That’s more than many baseball games get. It just goes to show the discrepancies between the sports and dedication. A little stir-up doesn’t hurt…

This will really only hurt the Guardians for Jose Ramirez being out for three games and the lineup in those affairs. That’s the best bat in the Guard’s lineup taken away for a couple of days.

Now, this isn’t to say that Jose didn’t deserve these three games. After all, he socked Tim Anderson the douche bag in the face and basically knocked him out like Ivan Drago to Apollo Creed.

Too soon? RIP APOLLO *crying tears right now*

Unfortunately, this season hasn’t been the best for the Guardians. With a 54-58 record, Cleveland is four games back in the division with the Twins at the top (59-54).

Final Thoughts:

Honestly, I’m surprised Jose didn’t get more games for what he did in throwing that punch and knocking Anderson basically to the ground. What I am glad is that Anderson got MORE games than Ramirez because he started it, he was asking for it and he got what he deserved. I don’t care about the past and if they had beef with each other or whatnot. Anderson started the fighting.

The other single-game suspensions mean very little. It’s not like this is a game seven of a world series or whatnot and as already mentioned, this team isn’t going anywhere.

Up for debate?

Is Jose’s punch better than Albert Belle’s clocking of Fernando Vina down to break up a double play?

Overall, I believe it’s good for the sport for these types of alterations to happen once in a while. Now, not too often where it becomes a trend.
