According to MLB.com, Angels starter Jered Weaver faces a six-game suspension for attempting to behead Alex Avila of the Tigers on the weekend. Weaver, angry that Carlos Guillen pimped a long, loud home run as hard as Carlo Guillen can pimp anything, took out his frustration on the next batter he saw. Video below the jump!
Six games insures Weaver misses one start, pending the inevitable appeal. More interestingly than the Weaver suspension is the one game handed to Angels manager Mike Scioscia, who already served his suspension last night.
Apparently, Scioscia directed Weaver to throw at Avilia despite the umpire warning both benches and having a long chat with Weaver as Guillen plodded around the bases. I find it very hard to believe Mike Scioscia did anything other than stare out onto the field making The Mike Scioscia Face. It’s kind of his thing.
