Burke Badenhop will be missed – he will not suit up for the Braves series as he began serving his three game suspension on Tuesday. Recall, if you will, the incident that got him there – the two pitch target practice Jeff Weaver decided to take on during the game. The Hopper opted to man up and take down Orlando Hudson in retaliation.
This after umpire Bob Davidson warned both teams after Jeff Weaver plunked Hanley Ramirez – for apparently no reason.
What happened to Weaver, you may ask? Only a fine. No suspension. Nothing. Badenhop serves a three game suspension while Fredi Gonzalez also has a suspension, only 1 game. So is justice served? Of course not.
