Mauer nearly got tossed today...wait, WHAT?!

mauer gardy ejections mind explosions world shattering
Mauer nearly got tossed today...wait, WHAT?! During the first inning of tonight's game against the Royals, Joe Mauer was called out on a ball he appeared to have fouled into the dirt. After he had walked back into the dugout, he continued to yell at home plate umpire Chris Segal, who was not taking very kindly to it. Gardenhire swiftly jumped out towards home and was immediately ejected, likely saving his star* first basemen from the same fate (which would have been the first of his career, BTW).



Mauer is hitting long balls and running his notoriously quite mouth
Gardy is referring to FanGraphs.com
Kansas City is in first place
Buxton and Sano have a combined 31 games in 2014

WHAT IS GOING ON!?!?!?!?

Also, welcome to my Blog!

Ugh. That was not his best PA.

 

Takes ball 1-2-3, then takes strike one, and then swings at ball 4 for strike 2, then swings at ball 5 for strike 3. It looked to me like he pushed it because he didn't want to take a walk after Santana had risked the SB of third (successfully). Any ball in play would have scored him.
