Rangers pitcher suspended for the rest of the season

At the minimum 16 games.....IMO he should get more...Baseball needs to suspend him for all of next season as well and send a STRONG message

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns



NEW YORK (AP) -- Texas Rangers pitcher Frank Francisco was suspended for the rest of the season and two teammates and a coach were suspended Friday after he threw a chair that hit a woman and broke her nose during a game against the Oakland Athletics earlier this week.

Pitcher Doug Brocail was suspended for seven games and reliever Carlos Almanzar and hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo were suspended for five games. Jaramillo's suspension is scheduled to begin Friday night against the Anaheim Angels.

Unless appealed, the suspensions for Francisco and Brocail were scheduled to begin Friday, while the suspension for Almanzar is scheduled to begin Saturday. All four were fined.

Francisco's suspension will be for no less than 16 regular season games in the event of an appeal, said baseball vice president Bob Watson.

Francisco threw the chair into the right-field box seats and hit two spectators in the head on Monday night during Texas' 7-6, 10-inning loss. With two outs in the ninth inning, the Rangers' Alfonso Soriano tied the game 5-5 with his second homer of the night. Moments later, with Hank Blalock at the plate, the Texas bench and bullpen cleared.

Francisco was arrested and taken from the stadium to jail, where he was booked and his mug shot was taken. He was released about two hours later on $15,000 bail.

Jennifer Bueno, whose nose was broken, said Wednesday she plans to seek compensation for her injuries once prosecutors and baseball officials complete their investigation.

Earlier this week, Francisco's attorney, Rick Minkoff, said the player rushed out of the dugout to defend his teammates, and was pushed up against a fence in the crush of fans and players.

Francisco, 25, was the American League rookie of the month for August, when he was 3-0 with a 1.69

And.... this somehow caused a chair to magically levitate and fly into the stands?

NO ONE deserves to get their nose broken over words. Sticks and stones.

Frank is a moron for doing this.

Francisco should be suspended for 30-40 games, I don't think that's out of the question yet... the guy should've stayed above the insults.

I don't have the least bit of sympathy for the poor old woman and her boyfriend though. Maybe it's because I'm a Royals fan and I've seen the pinnacle of fan stupidity. If those stupid people don't see a dime of money out of this I'd find it hilarious. If you stood in front of that dude without the security of a ballpark and started talking sh*t like that and saying how he needs to go work with his family down at the Home Depot or whatever, you would still be getting a chair upside the head, and deservedly so.

Who was that wrestler that tried out for the Vikings? Maybe the Rangers can sign him for their pen.
