Major League Baseball announced today that BJ Upton has been suspended two games for his ejection and subsequent meltdown in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game. Upton is appealing the suspension and will be in uniform this afternoon.
As we mentioned earlier, we understand why Upton was upset. The umpire screwed him. But at the same time, Upton did not do himself any favors by bickering about good calls earlier in that game. And because he lost his cool, Upton will not be available to help his teammates for two games.
