A Terrific Tantrum

ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

September 13, 2007|By ROCH KUBATKO

Orioles manager Dave Trembley's tantrum, after a blown call by the umpires last night, was worth any suspension that could result.

Orioles players applauded in the dugout. Fans who might have been turning on him gave a rousing ovation. They loved the emotion. They loved the fire.

Umpire Paul Emmel ruled Scott Moore out at second base on Jay Payton's RBI grounder, even though Howie Kendrick was so far off the bag when he took the throw, he almost bumped into the left fielder.

Kendrick was so far off the bag, he was standing in a different area code than the rest of the team.

Kendrick was so far off the bag, it was only a rumor.

The guy wasn't on the bag. That's all I'm saying.

The highlight came when Trembley stormed over to second base and drew a mark in the dirt with his foot to show where Cabrera caught the ball.

Then he appeared to toss Emmel from the game - a gesture that could get him suspended.

And it was so worth it.
