Full clip of the event from the Globe website.  (BTW subby, that was the phone he destroyed, not the wall.)

Just another ump who wants to be on SportsCenter.  Glad they at least were good enough not to mention his name.

\and I'd bet you 99% of the reasoning behind that strike was him stepping out and insulting his honor or some such shiat

They were up 7-2.  No reason for Ortiz to blow his gasket like that in the top of the 9th.

I was watching the game and on the replay, the pitch appeared to be right at the top of the strike zone.

He almost cause little Dustin to Hulk out. You will not like him when he's angry, Papi. Might want to tone down the shrapnel spraying of your fellow players.
 
2013-07-28 09:49:13 AM
The first rule of Ortiz, Never disrespect Ortiz...........

Whatever that means.  Watched the game, pretty boring up until that point.

A Peddy Hulk, hmm a cross between the Hulk, an angry Ferret and Sharknado!

Truly frightening!

They'll have the phone replaced in time for the next game, but Ortiz needs to be waiting in the dugout between the hours of 8:00 to 12:00.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.

FriarReb98: (BTW subby, that was the phone he destroyed, not the wall.)


It wasn't even the phone.  He somehow managed to destroy the cover, but the phone appeared to still be intact.

Still, what a stupid thing to do.  It was odd watching it though.  He was hotdogging the whole time, and the ump cut him A LOT of slack.  Then, as the next batter was coming up, the ump threw him out.  At first, I figured he was still jawing at the ump, so watching the replay where he actually made contact with something was a bit surprising.

I just wonder what kind of fine/suspension he can expect to receive.  He might play today since it is a quick turnaround from an evening game to an afternoon game, but the next series for Boston will likely be without Ortiz.
 
2013-07-28 11:53:18 AM
Maybe he just needed a garden fresh Summers Eve douche....

What a great job though. He cant throw , run or field and he fails at his job 70% of the time and still get paid....

Brain surgeons put down there scalpels and pick up a bat

I love ya Papi but stay classy...

I would have lost it if Pedroia jumped up, put Ortiz in a headlock and marched him to the locker room.

Thread jack coming up. Is it just me or does anyone else find it odd they still use landlines? You would think that cellphone companies would jump at the bit to sponsor the phones.

My guess would be a fine but no suspension. Guys trash stuff in dugouts all the time without disciplinary action from the league. It would have taken physical contact with the ump, or instigating a larger disruption of the game, to warrant a game or two off.
 
2013-07-28 12:07:04 PM
That's destruction of property and Ortiz should be arrested by the Baltimore City Police.

Cell Phones could lose signal.  If they were to change to anything it would probably be a IP based phone.  But the reason they likely stick with landline is because most of the stadiums are pre-wired with landline in mind.

I could see him being suspended since he could have easily hit Pedroia while he was hulking out.

That plus having it hardwired makes it so that the conversation is limited to just the bullpen and the dugout. It's not like you can order a pizza from those things.

He was mad because just about everyone who wasn't wearing blue in Camden Yards was taunting him after the little hissy-fit he threw when he didn't get the walk after the first strike was thrown.

/too many Sox fans at the game last night.

Zambrano made contact with the umpire. That's what he got suspended for. Also, pitchers generally get longer suspensions. Since starters only work every five days anyway, a one-game suspension would be meaningless.

No "electronic devices" are allowed in a MLB dugout.

For someone who was angry enough to smash a phone and supposedly try to instigate a fight, he sure walked away from the plate slowly and calmly.  Baseball: where even the violence is slow and boring.

Without a doubt, this was a ball. It was such a bad pitch, he saw it coming, thus his reasoning from backing off the plate.  It's not like he threw the bat and went to 1st base.  This is his only position and since he doesn't play the field, his only chance at helping the team.  You can't take at-bats away.  He did go to far in the dugout, and could of hurt another player.

Ortiz comin'!

/Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit!
 
2013-07-28 01:01:06 PM
Maybe the umpire took umbrage that Ortiz started walking to first base before the ball even reached the plate or maybe it was a strike. Without the batter's stance to compare the pitch to, how is the umpire supposed to call it?

JohnnyRebel88: Without a doubt, this was a ball. It was such a bad pitch, he saw it coming, thus his reasoning from backing off the plate.


It wasn't that bad of a pitch.  Probably was a ball, particularly the way the ump was calling the zone for most of the game, but it wasn't exactly in his eyes.  As for backing out, he was stepping out before the pitch even left Asencio's hand, so he had no idea if it was going to be a ball or a strike.
 
2013-07-28 01:18:57 PM
Did Ortiz ever find the Real Juicer like he said he was going to?

And does anyone actually believe he is not roided up to his gills?
 
2013-07-28 01:19:54 PM
He better look out for the phone cops.

If it was too high when he was standing straight up, I think you could tell.  I watched the game and could tell the ump did it on purpose.  He hesitated and thought about what he was going to do.  He looked at Ortiz first as well.

Harv72b: MBK: They were up 7-2. No reason for Ortiz to blow his gasket like that in the top of the 9th.

This happened in the 7th and was still a game since Boston's bullpen is beat up right now.

Rule 6.02(b) Comment: The batter leaves the batter's box at the risk of having a strike delivered and called, unless he requests the umpire to call "Time." The batter is not at liberty to step in and out of the batter's box at will.

It was a strike, regardless of where the pitch was. Otriz is a a roided-out ass/

Rule 6.03 The batter's legal position shall be with both feet within the batter's box.

That's not what that particular rules says.  If you are not given time and step out then the pitch is called however the ump decides to call it, it's not an automatic strike.  However, the ump can simply award a strike if the batter simply refuses to get in the batters box in a timely fashion.    That being said, even if the rule was written as you stated, in this particular case it would have been an incorrect application, since Ortiz was not actually out of the box when the pitch was delivered.
