Remember earlier when I said things were getting “testy.” Well, yeah, that is sort of coming to a head now.
First, the homeplate ump issued warnings to both sides after Twins pitcher Mijares threw behind Tigers batter Adam Everett. This was followed by a meeting at the mound with the pitching coach, during which Jim Leyland decided it was a good time to come on out onto the field and get ejected. He appeared to be arguing about the “sickle of death” call from the previous inning.
He’s now back in the clubhouse, presumably having a cigarette and a glass of milk.
