No Suspensions in Fielder/Mota Dust-Up

UPDATE: According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the reason no one was suspended was because the umpires had not issued any warnings and because the pitch hit Fielder below the waist.  St. Louis pitcher Brad Thompson was suspended for three games after throwing at the head of Mets' David Wright the day before.

There will be no suspensions, only undisclosed fines for Prince Fielder, Dodgers reliever Guillermo Mota and manager Joe Torre for their actions during Tuesday night's game.  Torre gave the orders for Mota to hit Fielder with a pitch in retaliation for the Brewers pitcher hitting Manny Ramirez with a pitch earlier in the game.  Fielder went wild after the game ended and tried to storm the Brewers clubhouse.
