    I live in Houston now but I'm from Dallas. I've liked the Rockets since the Tmac Era.

    The Rockets are the only Houston team I support.

    As a Dodger fan this is great. Hopefully he is banned for the rest of the series.

    He didn’t hurt anyone? So are you admitting that you are okay with what Gurriel did?

    Do I want him suspended? Of course not! He's playing great baseball right now. But knowing the sport gods and the city of Houston, chances are he's going to be suspended.

    As an Astros fan, I do not want Gurriel to be suspended.

    As a human being, I am not okay with Gurriel ridiculing another race/ethnicity.

    Stop slandering other posters on this board. It's making you look stupid.

    Astros must do the right thing and ban Gurriel themselves.

    Well apparently not because “supposedly” Darvish told Japanese reporters (in Japanese) that he should be suspended.

    Casual racism exists in part because society assumes its okay to be racist to your own. It was okay for Q to make the asian gesture about Bruce Chen since they were teammates...its okay for black people to say ni**as since they are black, etc.

    Stop supporting racist gestures. It’s making you look racist.

    The amount of hypocrisy and faux outrage with this whole situation is unacceptable to me, and that is what I am reacting to. I don't condone racism. And no, I don't think anyone should make the "slanted eyes" gesture in question. I think public figures should be allowed to plead their case just like an average person would (although maybe not even average people can anymore).

    Yeah I think Gurriel should apologize and the other guy should forgive him. Like grown adult men they should shake hands and best of luck to each.
    But you know what does upset me, that this damn series might not be about our team anymore. It’s going to be about “what’s right”. It’s going to be about race. This will make all the headlines. Because let’s face it, this is what sells. This is what generates views and tweets. Racism..... I find that more insulting than two men accepting their differences and mistakes.

    Darvish strikes me as a good guy but I wouldn't be surprised if the Dodgers put pressure on him and the MLB and force their hand to suspend Yuli...we all know that's what they want...

    That's a straw man argument. Supporting other posters on this board who are being slandered by you does not make me racist by association.
