It's one thing for an umpire to blow a call, allegedly, and then toss a
player for arguing that call. But umpire Tony Randazzo took that one
step further Tuesday night in New York. After Cleveland's Mike Aviles made what he thought was a check swing with one out left in the 9th
inning, Randazzo called it a foul tip even though it only hit off the
catcher's glove. After flying out to end the game, Aviles approached
Randazzo and argued the call further, but the umpire wasn't having it
and responded by tossing Aviles from the game, even though it had ended!
He continued to give Randazzo a piece of his mind, with some help from
Indians manager Terry Francona, but the damage was done and Aviles was
heading to the locker room... along with everybody else. The Yankees won the game 4-3.
