LEADING OFF: Cards-Reds in Mexico, suspended Archer starts

MEXICAN MATCHUP

Major League Baseball returns to Estadio de Béisbol de Monterrey when the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds begin a two-game series. Adam Wainwright starts for the Cards against Tanner Roark.

The Astros and Angels play a two-game series at the same park in early May.

MLB began holding regular season games in Mexico in 1996, and the 1999 season opened with a matchup in Monterrey between the Padres and Colorado. Last May, the Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers played a three-game series at the stadium — Walker Buehler and the Dodgers bullpen combined for a no-hitter.

Ahh, the joys of neutral-site games….

So Archer is going to start and then drop the appeal.... anything less than 7 days for a starting pitcher is not really a suspension, it's an extra day off.

Well, they lose 5 games of pay, right?

yes. still another two days actually hurts the team a bit also.

But the pay is going to be the deterrent. Especially for SPs, teams like giving them extra days off anyway, now and a again.

3% of your pay is a pretty good penalty. I'd know I'd be pissed losing 3% of my pay, and probably wouldn't do the precipitating action again.
