Starting Lineups: Brett Lawrie Went YOLO On The Umpire Last Night

Baseball, Ed The Sports Fan — By on May 16, 2012 at 9:55 am

Toronto Blue Jays infielder, Brett Lawrie probably doesn’t know what “YOLO” is, but he definitely did go “YOLO” last night. Lawrie assumed that he’d earned a ball four walk versus the Tampa Bay Rays not once, but twice, so when Lawrie took a called third strike, dude flipped his lid. Figuratively and literally.

Okay, technically he didn’t throw the baseball helmet at the umpire, but he did give the helmet the one-hop right into the beleaguered umpire. Yes, he got ejected, but it was well worth it. For me, at least, this was highly entertaining.

    Having said that, I don’t think Lawrie had any intention of hitting the ump (at least outside of his rage filled thoughts), but it happened. And he’ll get a good 3 game suspension because MLB don’t play that.
