Home plate umpire Todd Tichenor is a moron. He totally mishandled the situation and was the cause for this thing escalating. MLB needs to sit him down and take some money out of his pocket.
There’s no way Severino hit Donaldson on purpose. Plus, that pitch was not that far inside.
J.A. Happ should have been warned after THE FIRST PITCH to Headley and ejected after the second one.
I actually give Girardi credit for being a better man than me. Seriously, after the Headley HBP, I would have taken my entire team off the field and said “Bleep you. We forfeit. There’s no sense playing a game when you have a home plate umpire THIS CLUELESS as to how to run a game.” And, I would have let the Blue Jays management watch 40,000 fans walk out of their building after just one inning of play. Cha-ching!
I watched the game up until the debates. The whole time I was praying that some Yankees batter would push or drag a bunt up the first base line and run up Happ’s back, pushing his face into the ground and maybe even spiking up his Achilles tendon.
Good job by Severino in the bottom of the second doing what was needed.
The Jays want to be the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons. Hey, whatever. Good luck with it.
But, Todd Tichenor should be put on a performance improvement plan after the way he butchered this one. He was just horse shit last night.
