Gurriel banned five games in 2018 for racist gesture

Rob Manfred, the current Commissioner of Baseball, is in Houston will meet with Gurriel on Saturday before Game 4.

When cameras caught Gurriel in the dugout making the gesture and comment, social media erupted. "But I played in Japan and I know [that is] offensive, so I apologize for that", he added. He will also receive sensitivity training and personally apologize to pitcher Yu Darvish.

"Personally, it doesn't really bother me", Darvish said.

"I see a difference between behavior from one player directed specifically at a player and a logo", he said.

"I didn't want to offend anybody. It was not my intention". "In Cuba and other places, instead of saying "Japanese" they say "chinito" for anyone who is Asian", Gurriel attempted to explain.

Darvish was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and Iranian father. He also characterized "chinito" as a common way in Cuba to talk about an Asian person. "That includes both you and I". "And acting like that, it's just disrespectful to people around the world, to the Houston organization".

"Including him and I, nobody's ideal". "And then he made a mistake and then we're just going to learn from it". We are all human beings.

US Supreme Court rejects Guantanamo detainee's appeal
While oral argument has not yet been scheduled, the Supreme Court will hear the case sometime in the next year. Circuit Court of Appeals eventually ruled that the company didn't have to provide the data.

Yu Darvish says he isn't angry toward Yuli Gurriel, calling it a learning experience for Gurriel and adding that no one is flawless. This and Houston manager A.J. Hinch telling him, " That was wrong; don't do it again, dummy", should have been sufficient to cover a tasteless lapse by this gaijin. The Astros said they would donate the salary Gurriel would have earned from the five games to charities, including one "directly supporting diversity efforts".

Dodgers outfielder Enrique Hernandez described the situation as "disappointing".

All things considered, though, Gurriel got off easy and Major League Baseball missed a great opportunity to back up its recent dialogue about wanting more diversity, wanting to be more inclusive.

"Last, when I originally began thinking about the discipline, I thought that delaying the suspension would allow the player the opportunity to exercise his rights under the grievance procedure".

Darvish tweeted a short statement after the game, and seemed to be striking a more conciliatory tone than some fans saying, "No one is flawless".

"If we can take something from this, that is a giant step for making", Darvish wrote.
