Anthony Rizzo Will Not Be Punished For His Illegal Slide


Anthony Rizzo's slide into Padres catcher Austin Hedges on Monday night was determined to be illegal, but there will be no punishment.  Interesting, not a suspension, not a fine.

Say what you want about the rule, I'm not a fan of it, but if it's in place and it's violated there has to be a punishment handed out, even if you're on the Cubs.

We can't have a catcher made of glass get hurt.
