    At the very least, expulsion from the league.

    Ok. Garrett should be expelled from the league and Randolph suspended for the rest of the season.

    I wouldnt go that far. Rudolph was responding to the fact Garrett hit him late, then wouldnt let go, dragging him to the ground. Rudolph might deserve a game for the kick, but that's it.
    There are no strings on me

    The shit of it is, Garrett may get a lengthy suspension, but will be back, playing for some stupid owner who doesn't care a whit about players' character or behavior like this.

However, after a personal appeal by Roseboro, Marichal was elected in 1983, and thanked Roseboro in his induction speech.[31][36] When Roseboro died in 2002, Marichal served as an honorary pallbearer at his funeral and told the gathered, "Johnny's forgiving me was one of the best things that happened in my life. I wish I could have had John Roseboro as my catcher."[39]
    This reminds me of the reconciliation between John Lewis and Elwin Wilson.

    Sorry to continue hijacking this ugly thread.

    re Marichal v Roseboro: As a Huge Dodger fan before and after they moved west, I was watching this game when this happened and was horrified when Koufax stuck his left arm out to protect his catcher.

    I have had nothing but animosity toward Marichal for his actions. Thanks to this thread, I learned what happened later. It's a nice story. I may have mellowed. A little. A very little.
