Brian Runge, the umpire who bumped Jerry Manuel and ejected him and Carlos Beltran in the same inning on Tuesday was suspended by MLB for a grand total of: One game.
While the suspension seems a bit easy, Runge did issue an apology to Manuel which probably lightened his sentence a bit.
Things of this nature have become more and more common in baseball the last few years, and the Mets have been right in the middle. We all know the Mets and Angel Hernandez do not get along. Hopefully this suspension sparks a new trend of umpires simply doing their jobs.
Also, Beltran and Manuel were each fined an undisclosed amount of money.
