Manager goes nuts in Lexington

    Haha, that's quality work.

    "Look at how good Peyton is at going on the toilet! What's...that...PEYTON!!!"

    Peyton afterwards: "I'm not one to throw my mom under the bus, but...well...umm...she left a lot of my toys between the bedroom and the bathroom and it was tough for me to get around them and to the bathroom in time."

    BTW, just saw that nutcase manager clip. Holy shit, that was worth the hype. the best part was the batboy haltingly trying to retrieve the bats. He'd take two steps, then jerk back because the nutcase threw out two more bats.

    That dude needs meds.

    Dammit, don't make me have to write a letter to the editor to an off-market newspaper defending my son!

    Some might see it as overkill, I suppose, but I thought stacking the water coolers and batting practice screen against the door to the umpire's locker room was a very nice touch. Sort of put an exclamation point on the little episode.

    isn't it a 'rosin' bag and not a 'resin' bag?

    Pronounced as the former, spelled as the latter, I believe.

    I concur that the signature moment was the dive into second. Nice form. What's really funny is Clemens is just standing there on second with this confused look when he realizes the manager intends to pull it out of the ground.

    If that's his first ejection, he might want to try getting one a month in the future to release the pressure. I laughed too, but the dude shouldn't have thrown the bats. Everything else was kosher, but if that poor kid had gotten smacked with a bat, there would've been a riot.

    And kudos for stacking shit in front of the umpires door. I only hope he was able to stand there to make sure it wasn't moved before the game ended.

    It was the combination crouch behind home plate and pretend to call a strike followed by spiking the water bottle that skyrocketed the routine to the top of my list. great finale. he should have finished by upper decking the toilet in the umpires' bathroom.

    Has there been any footage of Clemens getting tagged out? I would like to know how close the play was. ESPN made it sound as if Clemens was out by a considerable margin.

    That was just beautiful, although the version I saw, you couldn't see him blocking the umps' door. He lost some steam trying to pick up second, but he definitely had the grand finale. That was just beautiful!
