Lawrie got four games. The league must have agreed with how bad the calls he was mad about appeared to be.
Think it had more to do with it being unintentional/bad bounce. Jermaine Dye got 2 games a few years back for a much less angry slamming of the helmet that made contact. Molina from the Cards got 5 i think last year for intentionally bumping/making contact with an ump. i think 4 is fair. He's appealing though so we'll see what happens.

Couldn't have said it better myself Joey. Great to see you back.
The ump was just in a huff because Brett started walking down the line after his first terrible call. Umps really should be reprimanded for blatantly going into business for themselves. It happens all the time too. Umps should have no effect on the game and when you call someone out in spite in the 9th inning of a 1 run game they are clearly having more of an effect on the game than they should.
