So then, you can understand dumping him for less demonstrative behavior up close, but you can't understand dumping him for more demonstrative berhavior 300' away.

You presented a scenario, hypothetical play, whatever you want to call it. And I told you how I would handle it. As presented it would never come to that.

In the numerous games that I have done I have never had to eject a player in the outfield. First time I have ever seen or heard of this. If the occaision ever arises I would JUMP at the opportunity. It would be a great "war story." So good it would be hard to top.

I have never before seen an umpire eject a centerfielder either; however, neither have I ever before seen a centerfielder display ejectable behavior.

Maybe he didn't say/do enough to get dumped before he got to the bench.

I heard Charlie Manuel interviewed on Sirius XM yesterday. He said he understood the ejection and basically Victorino crossed a line he should not have crossed by "showing up" the umpire for all to see. Manuel said that Victorino needed to learn to control his behavior on the field.

All this talk about rats and controlling them has triggered a rat control advertisement on the banner! Funny stuff!

Readings a skill. In my game he's gone.

3. IMHO it was the dumbest ejection I've seen in MLB.

Yeah, we all read what ya wrote. You started out by saying how could an umpire do this and what a stupid ejection it was, and blathered on and on about it. Then, after saying it was the dumbest ejection you've ever seen (without knowing any facts), you then tried to say that you were "just trying to understand what happened." Then later you said if you had the same opportunity, you would jump on it and what a great war story it would be. Then you wonder why we can't figure out what your problem with this ejection is.
