The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Out of Left Field: Did Anthony Rizzo Play Dirty and When Will Kyle Schwarber Be a Cub Again?

Out of Left Field: Did Anthony Rizzo Play Dirty and When Will Kyle Schwarber Be a Cub Again?

Anthony Rizzo Dirty Player?
Publish Date: 06/25/2017
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Father’s Day, but Chris and Graham are back and there is plenty going on in baseball. Commissioner Rob Manfred finally handed down his suspension to Hunter Strickland after hearing his appeal…and it comes almost 1 month after the brawl that started it. What is Major League Baseball doing and why did it take so long to rule on his appeal? Can the appeal process be amended or fixed so that a player cannot take advantage like Hunter Stricklanddid?

Plus, 2 key players are on their way back from injury. San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner has started his rehab work and is expected back in the dugout before the All Star break, but will Bruce Bochy let him take the mound or keep him sidelined until the second half of the season? Atlanta Braves 1st Baseman Freddie Freeman is talking rehab and return but something may be changing. Could Freddie Freeman return to the lineup and NOT be at 1st base?

Finally, the Chicago Cubs have been the talk of Major League Baseball for the past 2 seasons and the word “dynasty” has been floated around quite a bit, but with Kyle Schwarber having a terrible season at the plate and being sent down to AAA and Anthony Rizzo colliding with San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges, the discussion has changed. Did
Anthony Rizzo commit a dirty play, how long is Kyle Schwarber down for, and are the Cubbies really going to be a dynasty or is the dynasty dead in baseball?
