At least once before. He got tossed in Detroit a couple years ago and threw his bat to the backstop. Ended up apologizing to the ump the next day. He's a pretty placid ballplayer but has just enough temper to get him in trouble from time to time. It's good to see a little passion like that sometimes - it was a lousy call, after all - just so long as he doesn't make a habit of jawing at the umps. We need Denard in these games.
Has Span ever been tossed before?

I realize the Twins will not give up on Frankie this year, but you have to wonder if we aren't better off getting a look at someone else. There is no way the Twins bring him back next year and I think we may be better off trying to mold next years rotation right now. There is no way Hendricks or Swarzy should get bumped when Marquis comes back in favor of Liriano.

As soon as he exploded on the scene, we should have been working him as a closer. Maybe, just maybe, he'd have been able to keep his lid on for an inning a game. Regarding giving up on him this year, no one would take him unless we covered nearly his entire salary, given how he's pitched to date.
