Why no punishment for David Ortiz?

I don't get it: Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, in a fit of pique, smashes a dugout telephone on national television and does not receive a fine or suspension ("No answer," July 29).

I suppose he's too valuable to the Red Sox to upset. What kind of message does this send to the thousands of fans, especially the younger ones? Don't we have enough people with anger management issues?
