5+ games imo.
Nothing on any of the major sports sites. What for?
10 games minimum, 5 for the fight and another 5 for throwing his helmet.
He's beloved and a hell of a player but he needs anger management...he will seriously hurt someone in the future. Charging the mound is part of the game, throwing a helmet in disgust at the pitcher is not.
It's on the Sox website...
He will get hit with a suspension for charging the mound after getting hit in the back and throwing his helmet at the pitcher.
No way. He'll probly get 6 then appeal and have it reduced to 5.
Not since he used a "weapon". Others got five to six games before reduction to three to five games for inciting a brawl but this one including him throwing his helmet at the pitcher...no less than about six games after appeal.
There have been players in the past who did the same exact thing as Youk and didn't get 10 games.
Believe what you want then...
Just goin with the fact bro.
Has anyone in the major leagues been thrown at as much as Youk?
Kind of can't blame the guy ... they're always throwing at him.
No you are not. You are going by what you think. You don't know yet what it is, you are just speculating as I am.
Last year Coco Crisp got seven games and all he did was connect on a punch to the face. Youk could get the same amount if not more.
I clearly remembered Sexson getting 6 games for throwing his helmet and charging the mound. That is what I'm basing it on.
6 games I say. 8 if Selig/Watson have a spine. You can't throw your helmet like that.
I was going to mention him but I saw Coco got worse for doing what is really less- landing a punch.
Sexson's fight is here about 30 seconds or so into the video: Baseball Video Highlights & Clips | NewsDesk Live: Sexson suspension, Doug Davis' health - Video | MLB.com: Multimedia
Youk's fight is here: Baseball Video Highlights & Clips | DET@BOS: Youkilis charges the mound after being hit - Video | MLB.com: Multimedia
Youk's fight was worse. Youk aimed the helmet right at the pitcher directly Sexson hesitated and aimed it at the ground. Youk went right at him, Sexson hesitated for a bit before going after the pitcher. Youk's fight was worse, thus the worse suspension coming.
He should just have to live in embarassment for getting slammed by a pitcher. That's harsh enough...
They are lucky I am not Youk or I would have charged the mound with the bat. Damn how many times do you have to make a statement and hit the same player. I would have been pissed too. I did get thrown out of little league because a guy I went to school with was our opposing pitcher and he said he was going to hit me on purpose. The first 2 times up he hit and i told me coach if he hit me again I was charging the mound. The next time up he hit me again and so I charged the mound and beat the living crap out of the guy. And that's the bottom line because Youk said so.
How is punching a guy in the face less than throwing a plastic helmet at his legs?
