On Sunday night Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster intentionally hit Alex Rodriguez with a pitch. MLB has now suspended and fined him

Baseball officials handed Dempster a five-game suspension for his actions on Sunday night. After missing A-Rod on the first pitch of the at-bat, Dempster attempted it three more times, finally connecting on the fourth.

Yankee manager Joe Girardi was outraged that Dempster wasn’t ejected from the game, but is the suspension and fine enough? According to USA Today, the Yankees aren’t happy—Dempster won’t even miss his next start or lose any salary.
