This spot saved for a future comment. Let's just say it involves a little bet I have with myself.

Edit: Post 10. I would've lost the bet, as I figured we'd see that about post 5. I was wondering how long it would take before someone accused Miller of baiting Damon. No freaking way. If you open your mouth from the on-deck circle about balls and strikes, you deserve everything that's coming to you.

Did not look like a swing to me, but I guess that's not the point.

Boss:

I have listened carefully about 10 times.

Listen "through" the play-by-play:

You hear "something" . . .

Then a voice (I am guessing Bill Miller): "NO, it went all the way across (the plate.")

I am guessing here that Damon was chirping that the bat "barely moved."

Then there is another comment that I cannot hear.

THEN:

Miller takes over.

I "think" that is what I have heard from the start of the video.

Much like Rich, I am reserving my comments.

Regards,

I'm thinking there was more to it that caused Miller to turn to Damon and start in on him. He must have been having a problem with bench jockying before that, or with something Damon said that we didn't hear in the clip.

Hmmm,

Tim:

I really doubt it . . . obviously I don't know . . .

BUT:

Bill was one of my KEY instructors at the Golden State Camp:

In MLB baseball and in late season I think that small things set people off.

While you could be correct, my experience tells me we "could" have heard the whole thing.

Regards,

After listening to this yesterday a few times and then again tody, I believe you're right Tee.

A righteous ejection.

I watched the video with my two sons (13 and 16, both baseball players), and we all agreed that the Yankee batter did not check his swing. I thought that the PU did a very good job of letting the batter, catcher, and pitcher that the batter did not check his swing and that he had a swinging strike three. While we could not hear what Damon said, the PU umpire's initial response led us to believe the Damon asked whether the third strike was a called strike or a swinging strike. After that we still really couldn't hear was Damon said next, but it is my humble opinion that the PU then baited Damon. As a H.S. and college basketball official for over 35 years (and a H.S. baseball and fastpitch softball umpire for 14 years) I would definitely classify the PU's comments about getting into his business and asking Damon if he wanted to argue balls and strikes as baiting. I know that the MLB is a different animal that H.S. and college sports, but I would have put up the stop sign and informed the batter that balls and strikes were not going to be discussed and then let the player decided if he wants to press the issue.

And,

Mark, with all due respect, even with your resume you've NEVER worked MLB.

Bill was perfect in what he did at his level.

yeah hey guys, orangy back real fast.

There was an article about this situation in which Miller says Torre yelled something and then Damon jumped on him for it.

Thats why he asked if he wanted to get in on his biz-nass.

Back off Miller, he is a bad dude.

During the commentary when the camera is on the Toronto pitcher, you can hear Bill in the background saying "Stop! ----- Johnny! -- Stop it!" Then Bill goes into "Are you getting in my business?" It sounds to me that Bill gave Damon several warnings to knock off the crap. Makes me laugh because Johnny got away with this for years when he played in Boston. He always runs his mouth and finally got payback -- I loved it!
