Manager Ejections

11 posts in this topic

Whats your favorite manager ejection? There have been some great ones from Billy Martin to Lou Pinella. I think my favorite will have to be Lloyd McClendon of the Pirates a couple years back after he got ejected he grabbed first base and walked out with it. Very funny.

Sweet Lou's "First base is my frisbie" episode is my favorite. Probaby because it was original.

The rest are just wannabees base flingers. smile.gif I understand there was a minor league manager that appeared to need committed to a mental hospital last season. I missed that one.

Billy Martin's dirt kicking renditions were also ahead of their time.

Know what I hate? A sissy boy manager like the Reds currently have. He doesn't have the guts to make his players play like they care, then pretends to be irate at umpires so he can get ejected and try to keep his job. It's phoney, and he isn't the only one that does it.

Bobby Cox got ousted twice during the weekend. Gardy has had some nice ones. I love it when the managers get fired up and start throwing their hands all over the place and the then the hat comes off. Your outta here!

I only got to one Twins game last year (I live 2 hours drive away) and I got to see both Francisco Liriano start and no shock here- a Gardy ejection. A few years ago, I was living in Kansas City, and went to a Twins-Royals game and a pre-season Vikes/Chiefs tilt all in the same afternoon. Long story short, it was over 100 that day, and in the first inning Royals catcher Mike DeFelice got tossed, went into the dugout, threw aroud 10 bats and every jug of Gatorade and water out of the dugout onto the field. I told my buddy I thought it was intentional because he probably didn't want to squat behind the plate all day in that heat. By far the best ejection, although not a manager, I have personally seen.

"I know years ago Earl Weaver was the guy to beat"

Mitty, I forgot about the Mad Munchkin. Here is a link to some funny Earl Weaver. Can't believe how long Umpire lets it go. Ump gets in some good shots a couple minutes in though. Hopefully this link will work.

The Double A manager pretty much went insane over the weekend. The army crawl and gernade throw was frickin funny and at the end he blows a kiss to the fans. Pretty funny.

As im a Pirates fan the McLendon ordeal when he took first base with him was great.

But that minor league one over the weekend where the coach army crawled to the rosin bag and threw it like a grinade at the ump was one of the best ever. Im sure it will be on you-tube soon...

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
