Instead of walking it off and just getting the batter out on the next pitch (he got a hit and a run scored), he threw a tantrum and ended up getting himself and Contreras ejected. That boy needs some anger management classes or a solid rap up-side his cranial cavity. At least the Cubs won the game, 8-2.
I actually have a different perspective.... I thought it was great!
It showed me his passion and competitiveness. That incident woke up the Cubs and they pounced on it! Lackey was dead right and sent a message to Ump Jordan Baker... At this point in the season, you cannot miss a pitch like that. There is too much on the line. Betcha he won't forget how important it is to get the pitch call correct.
