Great ejection by Scott Barry. I am an Indians fan and Carrasco's intentions were extremely obvious, especially as he is yelling "let's go" as he is being ushered into the dug out.

Lou Marson's body language says he was pissed at Carrasco for throwing that and no one seemed mad he got thrown out. Carrasco fully deserves any suspension he gets for this head shot he took, will give one of our young prospects a chance to prove they can be better than that.

Good job by Wally Bell ushering Butler down to first base, and helping diffuse the situation. Proper ejection and a bush league move by Carrasco.
