Okay, that’s a bit extreme I suppose but…
I imagine Wak is not real happy with TWO ejections in as many SPRING TRAINING games, when there was only ONE in the entirety of last season (Ichiro, of all people).
Today we found out that ejection was not the only price Cliff would pay – it was announced that he will be suspended for five games of the regular season and fined an undisclosed amount. He will appeal but, in the meantime, Wak has got to try to set up his rotation and, at a minimum, this is really going to screw up the ONE, TWO punch.
Then, in the first televised game of the spring (vs. the Rangers) Milton is ejected. I didn’t see it but, from most accounts, including this one from Wak via Shannon, the reason was rather a mystery. Will Milton’s reputation precede him?
