TORONTO -- New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez plans to appeal any suspension he might receive for his role in Saturday's brawl with the Boston Red Sox.
 

"Whatever it is I'm going to appeal it," Rodriguez said Monday. "When somebody attacks you have to protect yourself."

Boston pitcher Bronson Arroyo hit Rodriguez with a pitch Saturday, prompting the AL MVP to stare at the mound as he moved slowly toward first base. Boston catcher Jason Varitek positioned himself in front of Rodriguez and the two began jawing before Varitek, still wearing his mask, pushed Rodriguez in the face.

ARod deserves less punishment than the other two. He didn't actually start anything. He just stared down Arroyo, and then the Sox started the brawl.

all that was on saturday was the way that baseball has always been played, he should have been ready to be pitched inside, varitek was only doing his job in that situation, keeping between arod and his pitcher, if alex had kept his mouth shut nothing would have come of it, the player who should get the biggest suspension is tanyon sturtz, no reason for him to charge into the pile the way he did
