20 games for Cintron?

MLB suspended Oakland outfielder Ramon Laureano for charging the Houston dugout and inciting a brawl in a game last weekend.

But Houston coach Gutless Al Cintron received a 20 game suspension for motioning for Laureano to come to him before stepping back and hiding behind a wall of Astros players.

Gutless Al's suspension is the longest for a coach since Juan Samuel of the Phillies threw punches during a brawl in 2000 and received a 15 game expulsion.

Cintron, who was not punished after being implicated in the sign-stealing scandal, apologized for his actions and said that he hoped to learn from his mistake but is he just another example of inept leadership within the organization?

Is 20 games too much or too little?

    As long as the Astros don't pick up his salary for the games missed it's good.
