The New York Yankees just learned about the repercussions of their fight yesterday and it’s not ideal going into the playoffs.
After the dust has finally settled from yesterday’s massive brawl between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers, we can all laugh it off.
Right? Wrong. Today, Major League Baseball released their list of suspensions and fines from yesterday’s midday melee. And several Yankees made that list.

At least the Sanchez/Romine suspensions will even out, especially if Sanchez appeals. Miguel Cabrera, on the other hand, was viewed as the aggressor, receiving seven games for his role in starting the fight.
I’m sure you’ve watched the skirmish over and over again since yesterday, but the shock really comes from the fact that neither Dellin Betances or Michael Fulmer received any sort of punishment for hitting batters yesterday.
The MLB probably got this one right but they definitely got one specific thing wrong; how dare they fine Brett Gardner on his birthday?
