Cardinals shortstop Ryan Theriot has been suspended for two games by Major League Baseball for his "inappropriate actions," which include bumping umpire Mike Muchlinski. The incident happened in the bottom of the sixth inning against the Reds in Cincinnati Sunday, when Theriot failed to touch second base on a force play. He believed he did touch it and went off on umpire Muchlinski, though some replays appeared to show he did miss the bag.

Theriot's suspension was scheduled to begin Tuesday night, but he intends to appeal (St. Louis Post-Dispatch via Twitter), so it will be held in abeyance until the appeal is heard.

Theriot, 31, is hitting .282/.330/.344 in 83 games for the Cardinals this season.

Ok, seriously....it's Theriot.  I think if the Cards lost the heads groundkeeper for two games they'd be more upset.
