I really don't think there's any universe where a baseball player would actually swing and strike an umpire upside the head with a baseball bat. (Delmon Young, by far, has come the closest.) However, when you're reacting in anger to a called third strike and you're still holding a bat in your hands, the wrongest move you can make, short of knocking the ump's noodle off, is to hold the bat high above your head with both hands, even if for a split-second. It was a decidedly jarring bookend to the spontaneously cool moment just an inning before when Dustin Pedroia learned he was about to be a father again. Baseball! Emotions!
