Machado and how a bat is the same as a fist

Today Manny Machado received a 5 game suspension for throwing his bat at another player. You might recall that happens to be the same number of games that Martin Maldonado received for throwing a punch. Now I know that the bat missed and Maldy landed a blow that gave Snyder a black eye. However a single punch which is about all you will get in a baseball type brawl can only do so much damage a thrown bat could potentially end someone's life. I feel that Maldonado received a fair punishment, bu Machado should have been at least twice as much. This doesn't even get into how throwing a bat is 5 while some pushing and shoving gets three. I firmly believe Gomez was punished too harshly mostly because of his past. Although that past was perpetrated by someone taking exception to him having fun on the ball diamond.

Anyway

Discuss. I am curious how others feel about this suspension compared to Maldonado and even Gomez
