That ain't nothing. Sports are so pussified these days that maybe it might get some heat but he didn't even throw it at him. He just made a statement throw. Had he threw it at him I guess it would be mean.

Josh Johnson gets his first win of the season... took this long? We need him to be the man again.

There's usually .400 hitters this early in the year... just wait until June. That talk will die.

How many games do you think Lawrie gets for that? I was surprised that only two were over .400 and the gap between them and the rest of the pack was so distant. Proves how difficult it would be in this generation to chase it.

5-10 games, MAYBE 15 but I'm pushing it on that. Just going off that .GIF, he threw the helmet in front of the referee albeit very violently and got in his face yelling, not entirely all that crazy of a moment. 5-10 games seems about right. Even that's stretching.

I want to see just once an umpire swing on a dude for getting in his face or doing some shit like that.. would be epic.

Windup for his ejection toss and just clock a player. Would be the end of that ump but what a way to go.

LMAO. I think umpires take the most abuse in sports, especially from fans. I wouldn't go crazy if one flipped his lid and just went nuts. Remember when those two boneheaded White Sox [I think] fans jumped that 1st base umpire? That was sick. One of these days an Ump is going to go mad..

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

I'd say a ten game suspension is what he should be hoping for at this point, I don't see it being any less then that (after the appeal)
He took two steps towards the umpire and threw the helmet at the ground at an angle towards the umpire, if he didn't know it was going to hit it he was just plain stupid. (well he was stupid for doing it in the first place)

He shouldn't get a 10 game suspension...

First of all the getting in the umpires face is nothing, players and especially managers do it all the time with nothing more than an ejection. From recent suspensions (Papelbon, Willingham, Molina) for umpire contact they have all been 5 games or less.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

Slamming his helmet down in the direction of the ump will probably bring more than 5 games. Or rather I would't be surprised if it did. Five games is probably enough. People get pissed in this game since it forces you to be calm in tense situations. That's why everyone fucking explodes like this from time to time lol.

re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >

bit different toss but Dye got 2 games for this a few years back

http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=4537879

id imagine it'll be a bit more. i could see 5 games. two terrible calls by the ump though, clearly called him out to "make his point" for Lawrie walking down to the base on the first ball four

Couldn't have said it better myself Joey. Great to see you back.

No suspension yet. Initial hints from farrell say he may only be fined which is kinda funny really. I guess it would mean the league would be taking responsiblilty for the terrible calls that were clearly out of spite.
