Illustration for article titled Indians Reliever Joe Smith Was Forced To Retreat Because No One Summoned Him From The Bullpen

Manny Acta wanted to calm Justin Masterson down, so he waltzed out to pay him a visit during yesterday's Tigers-Indians game. Joe Smith took that as his cue, even though no one had signaled for him. Umpire Gary Darling noticed and let Acta know. But the best part of the video below is the sight of Smith hauling ass back toward the 'pen and hurriedly positioning himself behind the fence, so no one would notice. Nothing to see here. Nope. Nothing at all.
