Padilla suspended for 7 games

Vicente Padilla has been suspended 7 games for throwing at Nick Swisher this weekend. He's going to appeal, so he'll still pitch on Wednesday, but my guess is that the Rangers will urge him to drop the suspension if it hasn't been resolved by the end of game 155...the last thing the Rangers want is to have the suspension carry over into 2008.

Nick Swisher got a 3 game suspension for charging the mound.

Padilla's is about what I expected, Swisher perhaps a little light, but starting pitchers are generally going to get a longer suspension than positional players anyway...
