Bubble Trouble: Torii Hunter nearly gets himself in three years' worth of trouble over four bottles of champagne.

I almost posted about this earlier, but I posted yesterday, and it's like a rule of mine.... Here's the direct quote and some background from last year. Here's the blog that supposedly broke the story of the rule infraction. I read this connection earlier today, but cannot now find a link that ties the CGTB to the story. So, the "supposing" is mine by way of some writer-in-hiding.

I can see the reasoning behind the ban, but a blanket rule is a little silly.

Loved this part of a comment from the story-breaking blog: it all starts with a bottle of champagne, it moves to whores and drugs, then Escalades and houses. The next thing you know, Dan Uggla owns an island near St. Barts

So, can I get in trouble for offering Ben Sheets a Hummer to drill Bud Selig with high cheese during warm-ups? It sounds goofy, but these rules have to be in place. Good on MLB for making sure players know about them -- and for apparently not hammering hunter for an innocent gesture. All unopened bubbly can be sent to: Free Booze c/o The IceBox, 400 Bayfield Street #17, Barrie.

So, can I get in trouble for offering Ben Sheets a Hummer That depends largely on what Mrs. Fraze thinks of bi-curious experimentation, I suppose. Sorry Fraze, I couldn't stop myself.

rules are rules but four bottles of champagne please Like they said in the article, allowing it would set a precedent that could lead to a much bigger problem. Yes this incident is small but allowing it would simply lead to more and more incidents.
