So apparently Carlos Quentin thought maybe — just maybe — Major League Baseball would reduce his eight-game suspension, a punishment he received for his role in Thursday night’s Dodgers/Padres brawl. Buuuuuuuut his San Diego Padres would probably relocate to Tijuana before MLB commish Bud Selig would lighten the sanction.
Quentin is the batter in the video below, and he charges the mound after Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke nails him with a 3-2 pitch in a one-run game — usually not the ideal time to plunk someone for shits and giggles.
Also, note that Greinke broke his collarbone as Quentin crashed into him. It takes a smart guy to think he could come off clean after sparking a brawl like that.
Thankfully, it seems that someone advised Quentin to drop his appeal.
