  • Not Giving Yu Up! Fans Still Hopeful As Dodgers Trail 2-1

Yulieski Gurriel, had just scored the first run of Game 3 of the World Series and was being followed by cameras as he celebrated with teammates in the dugout.

Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel has been suspended for the first five games of the 2018 season for an inappropriate gesture during game three of the World Series on Friday.

Gurriel homered in the second inning of the Astros' 5-3 win on Friday night against Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish, who is Japanese-Iranian.

The gesture exploded on social media as the game went on, and Gurriel apologized after the Astros' victory. Plus, I know in Japan that offends them.

"I would particularly like to apologise to Yu Darvish, a pitcher I admire and respect". But now that a tyrannical cultural left has bullied our institutions, including all professional sports organizations, into relentlessly and harshly enforcing every item of the vast PC code of etiquette, Major League Baseball is getting into the act, and elevating this boys-will-be-boys rudeness from the misdemeanor it is into a capital offense.

"I feel like, of course, Houston has Asian fans and Japanese fans, and Asian fans live all over the place", Darvish said.

Manfred would not compare Gurriel's actions with the Cleveland Indians' decision to keep using their Chief Wahoo logo, which has been criticized by Native Americans and others.

Darvish played professionally in Japan from 2005-11 before joining the Texas Rangers in 2012.

After the game, Gurriel answered for his actions through an interpreter. I've never had anything against Darvish.

The league and the players union also could negotiate a deal and propose that Gurriel accept it, foregoing the need for an appeal. He was sent to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline. "I sincerely apologize to everyone that I offended with my actions". Toronto's Kevin Pillar and Oakland's Matt Joyce each were banned two games this season after making anti-gay comments. "Acting like that is just disrespectful to people around the world".

Later, in a statement released on Twitter, the Iranian-Japanese player seemed more forgiving, adding that "no one is flawless", and while what Gurriel did "isn't right", he believes "we should put our effort into learning rather than to accuse him". "That includes both you and I. What he had done today isn't right, but I believe we should put our effort into learning rather than to accuse him. As citizens of the world, if we can learn from this and take a step forward, I think this could be a good thing". "It's just learn from it, and we've got to move forward".
