Sexson Suspended Six Games
Richie Sexson was suspended for six games for charging the mound and throwing his helmet at Kason Gabbard last night. He’ll probably appeal, so he won’t begin serving the suspension right away, but I doubt it gets reduced much – his reason for charging the mound sucked and he used his helmet as a weapon. Six games sounds like a gift, honestly.
The M’s will have to adjust their bench when the suspension hits – there’s no way they can possibly go with Miguel Cairo as their first baseman for a week unless they’re trying to get fired.
