Afredo Simon, Buck Showalter fined for throwing at Jose Bautista

Orioles’ pitcher Alfredo Simon was just suspended for three games and
Buck Showalter was suspended for one game after the Orioles figured the best way to stop Jose Bautista this weekend was to plunk him. Twice. The Jays’ Shaun Marcum was fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Baltimore’s Luke Scott in retaliation.

I have never understood the point of throwing at a guy for hitting home runs. Whenever I see it, I imagine the pitcher saying “Take that! This will show you for me sucking!”
