Brett Lawrie plays the game of baseball with more than his fair share of intensity. That intensity will probably earned him a little vacation after what he did Tuesday night. The Blue Jays third baseman blew a gasket after being called out on strikes by Bill Miller. Lawrie was punched out after a questionable third strike call, a call that followed a strike two call that Lawrie was less than pleased with. Upon getting the bad news from Miller, Lawrie simply lost it, charging after the veteran umpire and slamming his helmet on the ground. Depending on how you look...

  • If umpires make a bad call who throws them out of game? and what happens to score or player that bad call was made on? The league is not policing umpires the way they should be and right now instead of Baseball being played the way it was umpires are taking fun out of game,with their idiotic calls.
  • Ump was petty and vindictive. Strike 2 cut the left hand batters box. Strike 3 was a joke. Should be disciplined for sure. Did not make a mistake",deliberately made the wrong call to send a message to an excitable rookie. Now the kid will be suspended and the rest of the umpire fraternity will reinforce this message to the kid when he gets back by continuing to punish him by deliberately making more bad calls? What a disgrace.
