Burnett Suspended Six Games

From the Worldwide leader:

Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett has been suspended six games for throwing a pitch over the head of the Rangers' Nelson Cruz in Tuesday night's game. Burnett has filed an appeal of the penalty, however, and will be allowed to pitch until the appeals process is complete.

Rangers pitcher Vicente Padilla, who hit Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira with two pitches Tuesday, was fined an undisclosed amount.

Okay, I get it- so if you actually hit the guy, you don't get suspended. Idiotic. If the intent was was there on both sides, they should be dealt with equally.
