Milledge's Proabable Suspension

David Lennon at On The Mets Beat writes about Milledge's outburst and his suspension that will most likely follow:

In the seventh inning, Milledge popped up to short for the third out, but as he headed back toward the dugout, Milledge confronted Joyce on the infield grass near the pitcher’s mound.

Once face-to-face, Milledge didn’t get to say much before he was immediately ejected, and then had to be restrained by Henderson, who hustled over when things began to escalate. Finally, manager Willie Randolph came out to get between the two, and Henderson escorted Milledge off the field. That was only the beginning.

With Joyce still stating his case to Randolph, Milledge suddenly burst from the dugout and charged Joyce again before both Henderson and bench coach Jerry Manuel grabbed him. As they pulled him back, Milledge screamed at Joyce and repeatedly pumped his right fist at him.
