Oh no, No Cliff Lee

For five games. However it is still a big loss. Lee is currently in the process of appealing said suspension. The suspension was handed down of the heels of a bench clearing brawl that was instigated after Lee threw at D'backs Chris Snyder's head "with intention." Every now and again pitchers try to take that inside corner and occasionally the control isn't 100% and the pitch gets away. With that in mind 5 games seems a bit excessive, if the appeal goes in favor of Lee that suspension might be shaved down to 2-3 games.
I should also mention the bad blood between Lee and Snyder began a few innings earlier when the two had a confrontation at home plate when Lee went to cover. Still, Lee was trying to assert his authority during Snyder's next at bat and 1 little slip lead to a 5 game suspension. Lee has stated that he did not intentionally throw at Snyder.
That's all for now
Go Mariners!
