MLB Likely To Discipline Joe West

Via tweet from Jeff Passan of Yahoo, it looks like Cowboy Joe isn’t going to get away with his gunslinging in Cleveland yesterday:

Source: Umpire Joe West to face discipline from MLB. Punishment will be suspension or fine. Umpires union and MLB talking about severity.

Firing would be good. West has been a terrible umpire for decades. Unbelievable that they rehired him after he was one of the mass-resignation umps in 1999.
