Jose Mesa suspended 2 games

I apologize if this is old news, but I just saw in today’s press notes that Jose Mesa will be suspended for the first 2 games of the season for an incident last year.

On September 19th he was ejected and ultimately suspended 3 games for throwing at Mark Sweeney. Mesa appealed the suspension. With it being late in the year I’m guessing the appeal probably wasn’t heard until the offseason, thus the carryover effect for 2007.

  1. [...]  Jose Mesa will begin the season on league-issued suspension. The reliever will miss the first two games of the season because he threw at Mark Sweeney towards the end of last season. [...]

  2. I’d like to see the pitch Mesa threw at Sweeney. Did he hit him? Could have been real interesting if Jonsey had gotten a suspension for his antics against the Red Sox.
