Dafatone: He really just sort of spiked the helmet down and forward, in the direction of the ump. I think that suspension was warranted, but he didn't quite mean to throw the helmet at the ump. If he did, it would have been worse.

I agree, but it wasn't exactly a long shot that the helmet would bounce and whack the ump pretty hard.

I'm in favor of the "No touching!" line with respect to officials. Automatic suspension for any hostile act that is intentional or negligent.

Killer Cars: Yup. Throwing the ball at dirt: disgusting human being. Throwing the ball at an opposing player: "part of the game"

Exactly. 'Spiking' the ball should be a warning at worst, as that's all you'll generally get for a beanball (thrown below shoulder level).

The ump is an idiot for tossing him out of the game for that. Lighten up, Francis.
