Rays Vs. Nationals: Joel Peralta Suspended 8 Games For Pine Tar In His Glove

Oh, this is just hilarious. It's so good it just has to be fattening. Here's the official word from Major League Baseball's Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

OK, so news of the appeal sort of takes the shine off the news a little bit. But still, it must be somewhat rewarding for Davey Johnson, who had his manhood questioned by Joe Maddon after the initial incident Tuesday night.

Joe, you're probably not reading this, but on the off chance you are, we have a few suggestions for you. First, read the rule book. Second, listen to your elders. And third, and most important of all, police your own.
