|Guillen, Buehrle, and an Ump Fined by MLB
|NEW YORK (AP) -- Umpire Joe West, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen and pitcher Mark Buehrle have been fined by Major League Baseball for their recent balk flap.
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that there weren't any suspensions. The amount of the fines imposed Friday was not known.
Guillen and Buehrle were ejected by West on Wednesday for arguing a pair of balk calls in Chicago's 5-4 win over Cleveland. Guillen was tossed for arguing the first balk. An inning later, Buehrle threw his glove to the ground after another balk call and had to be restrained.
Guillen later unleashed a profanity-filled tirade about West. The White Sox were in Tampa Bay on Friday night, but Guillen was away from the team to attend his son's high school graduation.
