    Paid suspension, and if he makes the All Star Game, his contract states that he gets a bonus, which I'm sure would pay for his fine.

    So all that really happens is that the Rangers are penalized by not having him for 4 starts or so.


That's still big for the Rangers, as Rogers was looking like an easy 20-game winner this year and now they'll have to sub in an unseasoned rookie or minor leaguer for four of his starts. Seizing the AL West just keeps getting easier and easier for Anaheim.

Rogers was pretty much an asshole here and got what he deserved. Actually, if he were in any other line of work, he'd have been fired for doing this to someone at his workplace. Four games is a pretty good penalty in my opinion.

That said, I'm really not buying that the cameraman was injured and needed to do a stretcher job. Yeah Rogers was an asshole, but he pushed the guy down. He didn't beat him to a bloody pulp or anything.

That's right. The people who really get punished for Rogers being an idiot are the Rangers. There's almost no way that they can afford to lose him for four starts. The Angels are already running away with the division, and there's no way Texas can keep up with one good starting pitcher (Young).
