MLB says Rizzo's plate collision was illegal, but won't suspend him for it. Methinks the league not taking action will lead to HBP retaliation.

Just took a look at the video and Hedges played it perfectly
and Rizzo would have us believe he had to do it
I suppose if Rizzo was the catcher, and Hedges the runner, and Hedges did it, he would be suspended
Way to go Mr. Commi$$ioner
good thing we carry three catchers
we may need them when we play the lightning-crazed killer bears known as the Cubs

It's a quote from Animal Farm... so were the subsequent posts....

As Justin noted, I was quoting from George Orwell's Animal Farm to illustrate that the rules aren't always applied equally. Some animals (players) are more equal than others - as this situation appears to demonstrate.
