Well, what do you know? MLB has not only decided to swing its shithammer at the crew that screwed up a basic rules interpretation during last night's Angels-Astros game. It's also publicizing the discipline being meted out.

Fieldin Culbreth, the crew chief, has been slapped with a two-game suspension that will be served when Bud Selig says so. Culbreth and the other three crew members—Brian O’Nora, Bill Welke, Adrian Johnson—have all also been fined an undisclosed amount.
