http://www.ibabuzz.com/athletics/2015/04/21/lawrie-takes-news-of-herreras-5-game-suspension-in-stride/

Much in the manner in which he walked to first base after being hit by a 99-mph fastball from the Royals’ Yordano Ventura Saturday, A’s third baseman Brett Lawrie took in stride the news of the fine handed Ventura and the suspension given Kelvin Herrera.

Herrera was given five days for throwing a fastball behind Lawrie in the eighth inning Sunday mostly for getting too close to Lawrie’s head, although the fact that he yelled at Lawrie and tapped the side of his head in a threatening manner didn’t help.

Although Ventura hit Lawrie a day after Lawrie slid into Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar, he was only given an undisclosed fine because Ventura hit Lawrie in the elbow, an area where baseball traditionally gives more leeway.

In saying that the suspension of Herrera wasn’t up to him, Lawrie said he believed the reliever got what he deserved. And he said he expects no carryover in the late June series when the Royals visit Oakland.

“They’ll be watched closely,’’ Lawrie said. “If it happens again, the penalty will be 10 times what it was this time.’’

Some of Lawrie’s teammates took a harder line.

“It’s not my call, but if someone truly threatens someone else, then the suspension should be more than five games,’’ catcher Stephen Vogt said. “I think what he got was a little light.’’

Right fielder Josh Reddick said “7-10 games would make more sense.’’

“Five games for a reliever isn’t that much,’’ Reddick said. “That’s maybe two or three appearances. And with the lineup they have over there, many they wouldn’t need to use him at all in five games. For me, it had to be definitely at least 10 games for Herrera.’’

What Lawrie did do was to take on the Kansas City fans for their part in what he called “probably the worst baseball series I’ve ever been a part of … that wasn’t baseball.’’

“Shame on their fans for antagonizing everything that went on there,’’ he said.

And he said the one thing the Royals, who had six uniformed personnel ejected in the series, have done in the early weeks of the season is to open the eyes of people around the Major Leagues.

“There are a lot of people that have been watching the way that team (plays),’’ Lawrie said. “I think they definitely have a star on their back.’’

Lawrie said that he talked to Angels’ first baseman Albert Pujols while he was on first Monday and got a pep talk from the three-time MVP.

“He said `you were just playing the game hard,’ ’’ Lawrie said, talking about the slide Friday not that got the Royals so riled. “And the Royals did some bush league stuff.”

Lawrie said “in retrospect, I wouldn’t do anything different. This isn’t the UFC. We’re trying to win baseball games.’’

That included Lawrie himself, who took the heater from Ventura and just walked to first base while Ventura was busy getting ejected.

“I was never going to give them what they wanted,’’ Lawrie said, saying it would do the A’s no good to start a fight where there might be multiple ejections and possible injuries. “I hope people look and see I took the high road.’’

What a total ass clown. ROFL Oh yeah. We're to blame for everything that happened to Good Guy Brett.

BUT LAWRIE STARTED IT WITH A DIRTY ASS SLIDE AGAINST ONE OF OUR MOST IMPORTANT PLAYERS.

and a star on our back!?

Ha.

They're really coming at us with our 11-3 record. LMAO I guess we'd be 14-0 without that target on our back.

"in retrospect, I wouldn't do anything different"

Just priceless. Cain got hit worse than him and he took Escobar out with a cheap play. Herrera got suspended for pointing at his head. No discipline for any A's. But the Royals are the bad guys. Just fuck this guy and fuck major league baseball. Fuck Albert fucking Pujols, too.

Oh for fuck's sake, what a drama queen. Maybe he'll think twice about going in cleats high on a guy clearly not trying to turn a double play on him next time. Or maybe not, since he obviously likes the attention.

I'll say it again, Cain doesn't get hit early nothing else happens. Interesting that 2 games straight now, no Royals hit and no "thuggish" behavior by the Royals. Coincidence, I think not.

He hasn't even experienced this fan base at its "worst". He should call up Robinson Cano and find out he actually got off pretty easy.

Though I don't expect that to hold up the next time he is in town after this.

He is misguided as this was all his own creation. That said KC fans are loud and rowdy, and great at pouring it on and intimidating opponents while energizing their own teams. I don't sympathize with him at all, but I imagine it was a pretty rough experience to feel that much anger coming his way all weekend. The raw power of that crowd is incredible.

I'm biased, yes, but I don't see what the Royals have done to put a target on their backs? Is it the celebrations? Hell, I had some dipshit Oakland fan tell me that "Even if Lawrie wouldn't have slid the way he did, the Royals would have reacted the same if they were HBP." I brought it to their attention they had been hit 13 times prior to the Oakland series with no incident. No response after that. I'm just really struggling to find a way the Royals have played dirty at all this season. (sans the Oakland series, possibly.)

He is trying his best to take out a knee. The slide was late, cleats up and directed right towards our player. I am not sure how he did not get a fine for that. :hmmm:

But yeah it is the Royals fans that have done this. :rolleyes: Brett does not know when you shut up.

So awesome, settle it on the field right then and there.

I have a theory that if Infante just would have gone in swinging on Lawrie (like Sal almost did once he got out there), then Lawrie still gets plunked once and that's the end of it. But because we didn't go after Lawrie at the time there was still a lot of pent up anger at Lawrie, even though the Royals said it was over after he got plunked.

Yes Pablo I am a Cardinal fan first in baseball. But that has nothing to do with the reason I commented.
It is retarded the amount of people saying that this or that wasn't classy at a KC sporting event. When anything that KC has done would seem like a pin drop compared to a lot of other fans of franchises. We all know you don't have to look any further than Oakland, Cleveland, and Philadelphia to find the worst in fan sportsmanship. For the fans in KC to be compared with the likes of those is just, well like I stated before. It is just retarded.

Royals were right in this situation. He went in with cleats and there was no chance for a DP. Retaliation was needed according to the unwritten rules that keep players safe.

They hit Cain after it was even steven. The Royals are/were within their rights. And blame the fans? Fuck him.

As sarcastic as this place is and as bent as everyone got over Winston along that whole "fans in KC don't have any class anymore" BS that went around then, I figured that would have been recognized and ran with by others.
But no of course not, and in CP fashion the jumping to conclusions along with leaping head first off a cliff is what actually ensued.
