Pinella Suspended Indefinitely

Chicago Cubs manager Lou Pinella was suspended "indefnitely" by MLB on Sunday after his nuclear meltdown on Saturday caused him to be ejected from the game between the Cubs and the Atlanta Braves. Pinella, who never ceases to amaze or amuse during his tantrums, was run in the eighth inning. He stormed from the dugout after Cubs outfielder Angel Pagan was caught stealing third after the ball bounced away from the Braves catcher.

Pinella immediately started arguing with third base umpire Mark Wegner, kicking dirt, amd throwing his cap as he has done many times in the past with other teams. Wegner says Pinella made contact with him, a fact that Pinella denies. Pinella was immediately tossed from the game, which incidentally the Cubs lost to the Braves 5-3. Pinella will meet Monday with MLB Vice president John McHale Jr. After that meeting MLB will then determine the length of the suspension.
