Prince not suspended.... yet... nope, not suspended

According to Tom H., no suspension. However, he and Mota were fined an undisclosed amount of cash.

UPDATE 2:11 PM: According to Yahoo: "MILWAUKEE – Major League Baseball officials say they are still investigating an incident between Milwaukee slugger Prince Fielder and Dodgers reliever Guillermo Mota during — and after — Tuesday night's game in Los Angeles. MLB discipline chief Bob Watson said Thursday that a decision on disciplinary action could be reached by Friday morning."

UPDATE 7:36 PM: Okay so Yahoo is fucking retarded. Yeah, fucking shocking, I know. They finally put a story up a little bit ago saying the same thing Haudricourt said this morning. Good job, way to be on the ball. No wonder you are getting your ass kicked by Google. Webcrawler is probably a better website at this point in time, fucktards.

I can't believe Mota is not suspended. They are sending a terrible message to pitchers that plunking a guy is ok.

If they suspend Fielder and not Mota that will be complete bullshit.

I will boycott baseball for at leats 1 hour.

My right eye that pitch wasn't ordered...I may be wrong but I've been told that Mota was basically already leaving the game and they had someone up in the bullpen before he plunked Prince.

Yep, you're right. Why else would you have someone warming up in the bullpen in the 9th inning when you are up by 13 or whatever runs? Plus Russell Martin (aka the fucking catcher for Mota) came out and admitted it after the game basically...

I've kinda changed my view on this now. I didn't realize that Prince and him were kinda sorta friends? So I could understand why Prince was confused, didn't charge the mound and waited until after the game to try and rectify the situation.

Mota, Torre and Martin should have been suspended. You can't just be stupid and come out and say that it was intentional. How dumb.

That wasn't even an intentional hit by Smith. Smith has zero fucking control.
