Jason Kendall was suspended four games for charging John Lackey in Anaheim. Lackey was fined for mouthing off and provoking Kendall, but was not suspended.
The punishments seem fair to me. Kendall will probably appeal, just because that's what you do, unless you're injured and were going to miss time anyway.

I don't have much to say about the series against the Indians. Each team won a blowout. Blowouts are boring. The bats seem to be waking up a bit, but the starting pitching is still in hibernation. Dan Haren is still coughing up too many big gopherballs, while Kirk Saarloos gave up a lot of baserunners, but luckily escaped without giving up many runs.
I'll be going to one, possibly two, games this weekend. Here's hoping for some well-pitched ballgames.
