Joe West To Face Disciplinary Action From MLB For On-Field Antics

There's still no word yet on whether or not Ozzie Guillen and Mark Buehrle will get fined for their actions on Wednesday. However, one guy who will be disciplined? Umpire Joe West.

Between West dredging up a subject [Sox/Yankees] MLB was peeved he addressed in public in the first place, and the fallout from his ejections of Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen and pitcher Mark Buehrle on Wednesday, his behavior reached a tipping point for baseball officials. MLB reprimanded West during a phone conversation Thursday and will continue to consult with the World Umpires Assocation – of which West is president – to determine the severity of his punishment.

I can't think of (m)any people who are going to be too broken up about all this.
