Ian Kinsler suspended for one game

7 Comments

When you get kicked out of a game, you can’t come back on the field to celebrate a walkoff home run. Ian Kinsler didn’t follow that rule this past Friday, however, and as a result he’s been suspended one game.

Man, I hope no one hits a walkoff homer the day he serves his suspension. He may not be able to restrain himself:

Kinsler: Yay!

Selig: You just bought yourself another game, mister!

Kinsler: Well, I’m free the game after that, but beyond that I’m gonna have to check my calendar.

Selig: Good, because it’s gonna be filled. We’ll keep goin’. You want another? Just say the word. Just say the word!  Instead of going to prison, you’ll come here!  Are you though?

Kinsler: No!

Selig: I’m doin’ society a favor!

Kinsler: So?

Selig: That’s another one, right now!  I’ve got you for the rest of your natural born life if you don’t watch your step!  You want another one?

Kinsler: Yes!

Selig: You though?

Kinsler: Not even close . . . BUD!

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
