I have no problem with Lawrie getting a couple of games vacation for losing his temper with this meltdown but this is a perfect example of umps in baseball being too powerful.
It is not the umpires job to discipline a player period. The 3-1 pitch was a joke. Because Lawrie showed the ump up on that pitch, the ump calls the 3-2 pitch a strike as well.
I would like to see major league umps suspended and fined for this behavior. Any thoughts?
