Ridin' Pine

Seems we've got some boys behaving badly on both sides of town. And when one misbehaves, one needs a timeout.

On the South Side, Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen has suspended for two games because of actions in a game last week. August 9th, Guillen was ejected after the first inning for arguing with umpire Hunter Wendelstedt after Carlos Lee was called out trying to steal second base. Guillen will begin serving his suspension Tuesday.

On the North Side, pitcher Kerry Wood has his appeal denied on his 5 game suspension. Wood received his suspension way back in April following an April 17 confrontation with umpire Eric Cooper. Wood served the suspension already, but when he was placed on the DL retroactive to May 12, it negated his active roster spot and the suspension was reinstated. Follow the loss of his appeal, he will also begin serving the suspension Tuesday -- a full 4 months after the run-in took place.
