Out of seemingly nowhere, the MLB has suspended Tim Anderson. On September 27, the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers were involved in a bench-clearing altercation. The altercation started in the top of the ninth inning after José Abreu was hit by a pitch. After Abreu took his base, a wild pitch occurred, and Abreu slid in hot to second base. Abreu was tagged out, but things got ugly.

Now, it’s hard to tell from the clip above where Tim Anderson “made contact” with Tim Timmons, but I sure can’t seem to find it. There was so much pushing and shoving going on it’s hard to tell who’s who and what’s transpiring. The suspension is for three games. Anderson was supposed to start that tonight, but he’s appealing, as he should.

Since Anderson is appealing the suspension, the suspension will be put on hold. No, this shouldn’t affect the postseason. If anything, it will start at the beginning of the 2022 MLB season. Maybe the MLB can provide different camera angles and actually show proof of Anderson deliberately bumping into an umpire. Though, Anderson doesn’t seem too worried they will be able to find anything.
