Brett Lawrie Suspended 4 Games For Tantrum

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie is something of a phenom. You might be tired of reading about Bryce Harper, so take the time to read up on Lawrie. He has everything that Harper has, including the boisterous personality. Your adjective may vary, and it might rhyme with "swoosh", unless Canadians pronounce "swoosh" differently.

And on Tuesday, Lawrie wigged out on an umpire.





That's the kind of reaction you have when your desert-island mate gives the last of the insulin to his dog. That's not the kind of reaction you have for a called third strike, especially the part where the helmet comes up and wings the umpire. And Major League Baseball wasn't impressed.

Four days and some money. Considering that the helmet hit the umpire, intentional or not, Lawrie is probably a little on the lucky side.
