Ejections 158, 159: Tim Timmons (2, 3)

HP Umpire Tim Timmons ejected Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera and 3B Coach Gene Lamont for unsportsmanlike-NEC in the top of the 4th inning of the Tigers-Angels game. With one out and one on, Cabrera took a 2-0 cutter and 2-1 fastball from Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson for called first and second strikes. Cabrera would ground into a double play before teammate Prince Fielder struck out on a foul tip. Replays indicate the pitches were correctly officiated (both px and pz values well within acceptable ranges), though Cabrera and Lamont's post-inning ejections are unsportsmanlike-NEC by rule, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Angels were leading, 5-1. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 6-1.

These are Tim Timmons (95)'s second and third ejections of 2012.
Tim Timmons now has 2 points in the UEFL (-2 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call] = 2).
Crew Chief Eric Cooper now has 2 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (0 Previous + 2 = 2).
*Originally the UIC, Jeff Kellogg left due to injury earlier in this game; therefore Eric Cooper is the crew chief.

UEFL Standings Update

These are the 158th and 159th ejections of 2012.
This is the 69th player ejection of 2012. Prior to his ejection, Cabrera was 0-2 in the contest.
This is the Tigers' 11th ejection of 2012, 1st in the AL Central (DET 11; CLE, CWS 8; KC 7; MIN 6).
This is Miguel Cabrera's first ejection since May 11, 2011 (Vic Carapazza; QOC = Correct).
This is Gene Lamont's first ejection since May 28 (Tim Tschida; QOC = Incorrect).
This is Tim Timmons' first ejection since May 5 (Ted Lilly; QOC = Incorrect).

Your team is fighting for a playoff spot, and you are going to bitch and whine and get tossed...

That's not MVP-quality material.

The Angels catcher butchered the pitch in the above video, but it was clearly a strike.

U da man Jim Joyce, CC well deserved, he should work the world series along with LAyne, Nelson, Gorman, Kellogg, Davis

Last 12 sec watching that clip almost made me cry, and wanted to give him a big hug, great ump, take notes Jerry meals, New york, and pittsburgh not happy.

And naturally in the ten minutes between my last refresh and writing that comment the thread went back on track...

Bryan Z said...

Completely cluttering it LOL, curious, what do you do for a living Russ? I know you have no life because all you do is comment on this website. This is not your email account. Delete it, i don't care, I contributed to the ejction video.

Russ said...

Bryan, I don't care if you post videos from time to time and some of your info and questions about which crew is where is interesting, but you do not need to post all of these videos. It is too much and doesn't add anything. It would also be nice for you to act older than 5 years old when you get called out.

Bryan Z said...

Ok Russ, fine you win, your right, but i still watch alot of baseball, and therfore contribute to the threads, I like CCS alot. Im impressed you knew it was me posting the different crews, touch'e.

BAPACop said...

...wow.

Any News on the injured umps coming back from injury. I doubt it because the regular season is almost over.

Timmy timmmons should have 2 points on the leader board not -1.

RadioPearl said...

It's too bad Timmons didn't take care of business the first time around. This escalated into a $hit$storm because it wasn't dealt with at the time is should have been.

Eric said...

That was going to be my question...Why in the world did Timmons not toss him while he was standing at the plate arguing?

Gil Imber said...

@Anonymous 12:42 PM, Timmons does have 2 points as a Primary Umpire with three ejections. As a Secondary Umpire, Timmons has -1. Recall that Secondary Umpires receive one fewer base point per ejection than Primary MLB Umpires.
