Almost a month ago now, Torii Hunter was ejected by Mark Ripperger for arguing balls and strikes. He then removed his shin guard, batting gloves and jersey and threw them all over the field like a mad man.
And today during batting practice we have Anibal Sanchez doing his best impression.
One of my favorite things about baseball is the fact that managers and players can scream directly in an umps face without any real repercussion. Sure, they’ll get ejected, but other than that, nothing. Could you imagine if an NBA player did that, people would lose their minds. But in baseball it’s just another normal day.
I’m guessing Anibal wanted to wait at least a month before making fun of Torii. Dude has a temper so you have to give him a grace period.
