Trembley suspended for comedy show in Seattle

While I thought it was funny — Dave Trembley doing his best Piniella-Weaver tantrum in the first inning on Tuesday night in Seattle — apparently Bud Selig and the boys at the MLB office weren’t laughing. Today, Trembley was given a two-game suspension by the poobahs and will miss tonight and tomorrow night’s games at Camden Yards against Toronto.

Bench coach Dave Jauss will serve as acting manager for a few days and those who are “done” with Trembley will get their wish for at least a few days.

By the way, it’s kinda crazy they could suspend Trembley when he was RIGHT on the call.

But who says MLB is fair?

Apparently, the reason he was suspended wasn’t necessarily the outburst as much as admitting to the media afterward that he continued to manage the game from the bench.

Aren’t we in a silly era when they still “throw out” managers who we all know are managing by proxy somewhere?

Trembley apparently declined an invitation to sit in the press box tonight. I suppose he’ll manage by “text” from somewhere in the owner’s box with a shrimp cocktail, a crab cake on crackers and a tie on next to Andy McPhail. Getting suspended is a respite from the fray and as evidenced by the display below, that might not be a bad thing…

Anyway, here’s a funny video from Seattle shot by fans behind Trembley over the dugout…
