What Would Joe Do #3?

In regard to the bench clearing brawl from the game from Tuesday, Sept. 15th
Hot-headed Jorge Posada's temper cost him a suspension and a fine, punishment for touching off Tuesday's bench-clearing brawl. Posada and Toronto relief pitcher Jesse Carlson got $3,000 fines and both got three-game suspensions, as did Yankee reserve Shelly Duncan.
Posada and Carlson's original four-game bans were reduced on the condition they not appeal, so both began their suspensions last night. That's wise in Posada's case, so that he doesn't risk missing games vs. the Angels and Red Sox next week; Joe Girardi likely would've preferred Posada show that kind of common sense a day earlier
