Justin Upton couldn't believe umpire called him safe on challenged play

Just act cool, Justin! The Padres' outfielder's face after he unexpectedly beat what appeared a certain double play is just brilliant -- like he had just successfully framed his brother after getting caught with an arm in the cookie jar (his figurative brother, not Melvin).

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton Throws Batting Helmet In Dugout; Nails Teammate In Head

When a baseball player gets picked off by the pitcher it has to be frustrating. So it is understandable that Padres outfielder Justin Upton would be a little upset after getting picked off in the 8th inning Saturday night.
