#Cubs Contreras suspension has been reduced to one game. He will serve it today

Cubs catcher Willson Contreras has been suspended two games for his heated altercation with the home plate umpire during Friday’s game.
John Lackey appeared to have strike three on a pitch to his counterpart Carlos Martinez, however umpire Jordan Baker ruled it ball three instead. On the ensuing pitch, Martinez drove in Kolten Wong with an RBI single.
Lackey and Contreras weren’t happy, and Contreras put the icing on the cake by doing his own Rob Gronkowski impression with his mask.
As a result, Contreras was fined an undisclosed amount and suspended two games. Lackey was fined an undisclosed amount as well.
My biggest takeaway from the story, though: I wonder if Mia Khalifa interested now…
