Brandon Tierney Believes Joe Kelly's Eight-Game Suspension is Fully Justified

  Brandon Tierney Believes Joe Kelly's Eight-Game Suspension is Fully Justified Brandon Tierney thinks Joe Kelly's suspension was justified because he aimed at the heads of Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa.Tierney took the the air on Tiki and Tierney and said he has no problem with a pitcher targeting a hitter's ribs or back, but launching an upper-90s fastball at someone face is bush league and worthy of a suspension.

Kelly received an eight - game suspension for his actions after he threw a pitch in the area of the head of Houston Astros’ Alex Bregman and later Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, a day after throwing a fastball near the

If Kelly sat out six games for his first offense, eight games for a second offense isn’t that big a leap. And while Kelly ’ s sitting out a larger percentage of the season this time, what if Kelly can’t throw at batters just because he’s upset. Or rather, he can, but he ought to be prepared to take a suspension .

Joe Kelly was suspended by Major League Baseball after he threw at the heads of two Houston Astros players Tuesday night. Brandon Tierney believes that suspension is fully justified. Tierney had no problem with Kelly targeting the Astros as payback for the sign-stealing scandal, but he did have an issue with targeting their heads.

Dodgers' Kelly banned for eight games for Astros fireworks

  Dodgers' Kelly banned for eight games for Astros fireworks Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly was slapped with an eight-game ban by Major League Baseball on Wednesday after his fiery display against the Houston Astros. Kelly triggered a bench-clearing confrontation during the Dodgers' 5-2 victory over the Astros on Tuesday in the first meeting between the two teams since Houston were punished for their 2017 sign-stealing scandal. A statement from Major League Baseball said Kelly had aimed a pitch near Astros shortstop Alex Bregman's helmet, and later taunted Carlos Correa after striking the Houston slugger out in the sixth inning.

Kelly wasn't a member of the 2017 Dodgers but played for the Red Sox, whom Houston beat in the ALDS that year. He was part of Boston' s 2018 championship team that was later found to have stolen signs to a lesser extent during the regular season.

Kelly threw a pitch that looked like it was deliberately aimed at Alex Bregman, and then another ball nearly nailed Carlos Correa. So what was said that escalated the whole situation that could have been some retribution for the Astros cheating scandal?

Check out his argument:

Tierney played four years of Division I baseball in college, so he understands the rules of baseball, written or otherwise.

There's no doubt that headhunting the way Kelly did is dangerous and irresponsible. Everyone in MLB knew the Dodgers were going to target the Astros, but when you throw 98 and aim at someone's head, that's taking things too far. That can lead to a life-changing injury and has no place in baseball.

If Kelly had buried balls in Alex Bregman or Carlos Correa's ribs, we're not even having this discussion. It wasn't what he did, it's how he did it that's the problem here.
