Well this just isn’t fair. Joe Kelly throws a couple pitches intentionally at the Houston Astros, because they are cheaters, and he gets suspended for 8 games. Meanwhile, the cheating pricks, who won a World Series while cheating, never even got a one-game suspension. Dodgers fans should be heated, MLB fans should be heated, and we all should continue to scream #FuckTheAstros.
I am pissed. The #MLB is ran by a bunch of idiots. First the commish says its “just a piece of metal”… now this. Joe Kelly gets 8 games for throwing at the cheaters?! #Dodgers players SHOULD be heated.

Per Fox – Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Joe Kelly was suspended by Major League Baseball for eight games on Wednesday after he intentionally threw at Houston Astros players Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa.
During the sixth inning of the Dodgers’ 5-2 win over Houston at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday, benches cleared after Kelly’s actions. It was the first game between the two clubs since the Astros were accused of stealing signs en route to a 2017 World Series title. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was suspended for one game, and Astros manager Dusty Baker was fined an undisclosed amount. Kelly elected to appeal and can continue to play until the process is complete. Roberts was to serve his suspension Wednesday when the Dodgers played at Houston. Kelly, a hard thrower with a touch of wildness, has previously been suspended in his career for throwing at a batter.
