In your workplace, who would likely garner a stiffer punishment?

a) an employee who violates an illegal substance policy

b) an employee who flies into a fit of rage, violently smashes equipment, and menaces a supervisor with threatening gestures and actions

At my job worker B would be terminated and arrested, while worker A would receive counseling.

I just watched the incident... what was he mad about? He clearly didn't check the swing, did he feel he got a bad strike call earlier in the AB?

Really weird. As to your point.... yeah, sports in general are so divorced from real life it's not even a fair comparison(should it be is a whole other topic of discussion).

The 3-0 pitch was called a strike. It was high.

Doesn't Ortiz fit into both categories?
