Cincinnati is locked in a tight battle with Purdue for the right to play (presumably) Kentucky in the next round, but their task just got a lot harder after forward Octavius Ellis was given a flagrant two and ejected for the forearm shiver above.

Baseball is full of pointless indignities, but the fact a player can be ejected from a game he's already, by rule, barred from re-entering is one of the most impotent.

"My Pitcher Is Terrible, My Bullpen Can't Get Anybody Out": What…

For a sport with so many supposed "unwritten rules," baseball sure has a lot of written ones. But the official rulebook is much like the U.S. Constitution: remarkably broad, and designed to allow arbiters to interpret what's in there. One instance that allows for wide latitude is what constitutes an ejectable offense.… » 12/17/12 12:40pm 12/17/12 12:40pm

Matt Kemp's Tirade Was Too Obscene For One Young Pirates Fan [UPDATE]

In the middle of Andre Ethier's second-inning at-bat today in Pittsburgh, Matt Kemp (who was in the dugout and had struck out the previous inning) was jawing at home plate umpire Angel Campos, who warned Kemp at least once to cool it. (The first thing you can hear here is Campos telling Kemp, "I don't want to hear… » 8/16/12 6:20pm 8/16/12 6:20pm

A "Foreign Substance" On Joel Peralta's Glove Resulted In The Most…

Normally, when our esteemed umpires throw someone out of the game, it's done with a flair and excitement that fans of both sides can usually get behind. But when the umpiring crew in tonight's Nationals-Rays game discovered a "foreign substance" on the glove of Rays reliever Joel Peralta, the result was, thanks to… » 6/19/12 11:50pm 6/19/12 11:50pm

Omar Vizquel Was Ejected From A Game In Which He Wasn't Even Playing

Home plate umpire Sam Holbrook ejected veteran Blue Jays infielder Omar Vizquel from tonight's Texas-Toronto game for arguing balls and strikes. That's a big no-no in the umps-rule-all majors, of course, but tonight's twist is that Vizquel wasn't even in the game at the time; Holbrook took offense to Vizquel's… » 5/01/12 9:00pm 5/01/12 9:00pm

Mike Brown Earned His Ejection With This On-Court Meltdown

The rage came forth from Lakers coach Mike Brown in the final period of L.A.'s 96-87 loss to the Jazz tonight in Salt Lake City.
