Joe Girardi Gets Tossed After Epic Tirade


One of the most exciting things in baseball is when the coach argues with the umpire over a blown call. In baseball you’re not supposed to argue balls and strikes but that doesn’t stop managers from letting umpires know that they are not too happy with their strike zone. Some arguments are very civil but every now and then, like the other night in Tampa, we get an epic tirade. New York Yankees manager, Joe Girardi, wasn’t pleased when his pitching coach, Larry Rothschildwas thrown out of the game and he let the home plate umpire know it. Girardi ended his tirade with the classic move of covering up home plate with dirt.

Let’s see what Twitter thought of this most recent coaching meltdown.


Not too bad by Girardi. Still find it pretty funny that they cover up home plate with dirt like it's some inconvenience for the umpire to brush it off with his little hand brush. This was good and Girardi definitely got his money's worth, but nothing will beat this epic tirade by this Atlanta Braves minor league manager from about 10 years ago.
