Morgan Gets Eight Games, According to SI.com's Jon Heyman

According to a tweet by SI.com's Jon Heyman, Nyjer Morgan will receive an eight-game suspension for "three separate incidents" this week; presumably his collision with Cardinals catcher Bryan Anderson, his role in the Wednesday night brawl, and taunting the Marlins crowd on his way off the field. He also mentions other suspensions: Chris Volstad (six games), Alex Sanabia (five games), Gaby Sanchez (three games) and Doug Slaten (three games). MASN.com's Ben Goessling tweeted later that Manager Jim Riggleman was "suspended for Friday and Saturday's games" as well, and third base caoch Pat Listach's three-game suspension will start Sunday to avoid overlapping wihh Riggleman. Goessling also reports that Riggleman was fined for "inappropriate comments" by Frank Robinson, MLB director of Umpires. I've watched the replays of the brawl about a dozen times, and all I can see of Alex Sanabia is him getting tossed like a rag doll by Adam Dunn out of the pile. For that he gets just three games less than Morgan? It will be interesting to read the final report from this one.
