This is ridiculous. Whatever your thoughts on decorum in baseball or whatever, one of the games best players should not be getting thrown out of the game in the first inning. Maybe if he spit on the ump. Maybe.
But that's exactly what happened here when Miguel Cabrera argued too vociferously, in Brian Gorman's estimation, that he did not swing at a pitch that hit him in the knee that was clearly causing him discomfort.
