Gurriel issued five-game ban, but not in World Series

Yuli Gurriel has avoided a suspension during the World Series for an inappropriate gesture during Game 3 of the World Series.

Yuli Gurriel, one of the key hitters for the Houston Astros, was suspended for five games after television cameras caught him making a gesture and mouthing a word with racial overtones during Friday's game.

Gurriel, who played the 2014 season for Japan's Yokohama BayStars, apologized to Darvish and said he meant no disrespect but Manfred said such a racist gesture had to be punished by a greater-than-usual ban. "I sincerely apologize to everyone that I offended with my actions. On the contrary, I've always had a lot of respect for them". "I was commenting to my family that I didn't have any luck against Japanese pitchers here in the United States".

Darvish was born in Japan, to an Iranian father and a Japanese mother.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said the team was "surprised and disappointed" by Gurriel's behavior and supported Manfred's decision.

Per Gabe Lacques and Jorge L. Ortiz of USA Today, Gurriel also admitted to using the Spanish term "Chinito", which translates to "little Chinese guy", in the dugout. The four-time All-Star played professionally in Japan from 2005-11 before joining the Texas Rangers in 2012.

Collins rules out ME governor's bid, will stay in Senate
Collins put an end to months of speculation when she made her announcement at the Samoset Resort in Rockport Friday morning. Collins, 64, is one of just five women now serving among Senate Republicans, while the Democrats have 16 women serving.

He never specifically referenced the hand gesture he made near his eyes, and the interview was halted by an Astros official before reporters could clarify if Gurriel understood how offensive the gesture was considered.

"I've never had anything against Darvish", Gurriel said.

The league and the players union also could negotiate a deal and propose that Gurriel accept it, foregoing the need for an appeal.

"Including him and I, nobody's ideal". If I offended him, I apologize. "And acting like that, it's just disrespectful to people around the world, to the Houston organization". We're just going to have to learn from it. (I didn't see it, and don't care to.) This touched of a storm from the Indignation-Industrial Complex, and one of its subsidiaries, Major League Baseball.

Instead, he will be suspended the first five games of next season. He was traded to the Dodgers at this year's July 31 trade deadline.

Darvish wrote on his Twitter account that "I believe we should put our effort into learning rather than to accuse (Gurriel). It's just learn from it, and we've got to move forward".
