Major League Baseball announced today that Tigers right hander Rick Porcello has received a six-game suspension and fined for intentionally throwing at Tampa's Ben Zobrist Sunday at Tropicana Field.

Porcello said he will appeal the decision, but at the most he would miss only one start if the suspension stands.

Porcello declined to comment on the situation before tonight's game.

Mario, You are a champ! But I wish you would pronounce "Sanchez" correctly. It is, "SAHNchez." You and Rod both say it with a Gringo accent. You say the A the way we say it in, "franchise," or, "nasty." Just wrong.

If somebody called you, "Mayrio," rather than, "Mahrio," would you like it? Probably, no. It is easy to say, "Sahnchez."

After viewing the Detroit Tigers game in Toronto recently, where Colby Rasmus' slide into second base took out Omar Infante, I would like o comment.
It was indeed a"dirty slide" , with his cleats pointed up, no less. He also slid late and did not appear to be attempting to break up a double play. I am very surprised as well as disappointed that he was not suspended.

Mario, you are a wonderful, successful, entertaining, experienced pro announcer. Great voice, incredible modulation and delivery; sense of humor, and so on and so on... But, why the heck do you not make a point of learning how to pronounce Spanish names? I'll mail a book.

I am hearing you this Thursday afternoon. Sanchez is pitching. You and Rod both are saying his name wrong. (Pronouncing it like, "franchise.") I give up. I will listen to the radio audio, rather than listening to you. You make a very good living on the sound of your voice. Why do you insist on this bad sound on certain Spanish words?
