Astros' Gurriel Makes Racist Joke Mocking Dodgers' Yu Darvish During Game Three Of World Series

Astros' Gurriel may be punished for gesture at LA's Darvish

Astros manager A.J. Hinch, who was not involved with the Gurriel discipline other than "a couple of conversations here and there" said the team owed respect to Manfred at the highest level as he had spoken on behalf of the whole sport.

Gurriel homered off Darvish in the second inning of Houston's 5-3 win on Friday.

In a post-game interview, Darvish said through a translator: "Acting like that, you just disrespect all the people around the world". He said he knows the Japanese are offended by it because he played in Japan in 2014. I suspect it might be a different story when the series moves to Los Angeles on Tuesday for game six.

It further stated that the train departed at 9 am from Karmali and 230 passengers were served breakfast on board. The IRCTC officials said that an enquiry would be initiated to find out the cause of the food poisoning.

Gurriel said the derogatory term is used commonly in Cuba to refer to Asian people. I would also like to apologizs to the Dodgers organisation, the Astros, Major League Baseball and to all fans across the game, ' he said.

Even Darvish - born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Iranian father - tweeted, "No one is ideal".

But it's not for the rest of this year's World Series, in which the Astros led the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 entering Game 4. But with there being only one more day without baseball until the end of the season, it would have been very hard for Manfred to have held a full disciplinary procedure - which would have to include an appeals process as well - before the end of the campaign. Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar was suspended in May for using a homophobic slur.

The lawsuit also alleged the Carrera GT had a "history of instability and control issues", accoridng to The Blast . The terms of the settlement are confidential, but both parties are asking for the suit to be dismissed.

Gurriel spent 15 years in the Cuban professional league and played in Japan for a year before signing with the Astros last season.

But even if Major League Baseball elects to suspend Gurriel, he's nearly certain to appeal, which likely would delay the process so that a decision isn't made until after the World Series.

Gurriel has accepted his punishment and will lose over £250,000 in salary during his ban, but this continues to show the amount of work that still needs to be done by major professional sports to educate players about what is acceptable behaviour. "I think he's one of the best pitchers in Japan, and I never had success against him".
