  1. Well, I almost always agree with his argument with the umpires, and he was totally in the right today…to say the least! That pitch was WAY high…

  2. Very bad call by the Umpires with too much authorities a manager or a players even if he is wrong Umpires should be fined for terrible call like this

  3. Aaron Boone is a cry baby, and leaves his binky and blankie in the clubhouse to cuddle up with after every ejection and loss. Pick and choose your battles “Cry baby” Boone. Boone is proving that he does not want to spend time with his team in the dugout due to his early ejection tirades.
