MLB Ejection 142: Ted Barrett (1; Jose Reyes)

HP Umpire Ted Barrett ejected Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Blue Jays-Yankees game. With two out and one on, Reyes took a 2-2 changeup from Yankees

pitcher Adam Warren for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located knee high and over the outer half of home plate (sz_bot 1.520, pz 1.593) and the previous two called strikes were also properly officiated (pz 1.602)(px 0.824), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Blue Jays were leading, 1-0. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Ted Barrett (65)'s first ejection of 2013.

You can see Barrett ready to issue the equipment violation for the bat toss if Reyes doesn't pick it up, but as soon as Reyes throws the helmet and especially behind him anywhere near where the umpire is standing, that equip fine just turned into an ejection.

Umpires need to learn they aren't the stars of the game that people pay money to see.

Players need to learn that people don't pay to see them act like immature children when they don't get their way, thereby having themselves removed from the very game that people pay to see them 'professionally' play.

Looks like an easy call here! Toss the helmet back to the dugout and it is what it is. But throwing it in the direction of the umpire is an easy ejection..

Gil Imber said...

Can we change the reason for ejection to Reyes' Haircut.

Gil Imber said...

Since when did the "dirt" equal the "dugout"? Come on, Buck.

Gil Imber said...

You're right. The players are there to play baseball, which doesn't include throwing helmets around calls. The umpires are there to enforce the rules, which coincidentally do not permit throwing helmets around to argue calls. So I'm not really seeing the relevance of your comment here.

Gil Imber said...

Well there's usually dirt in the general vicinity of the dugout... So I guess that counts?

Gil Imber said...

Well, his helmet did actually end up landing right next to his bat.. Not saying it was right, but it's not like it was thrown completely out of the way either..

Gil Imber said...

You guys have this all wrong. Barrett threw him out because the helmet landed right at the feet of the bat boy. Reyes was showing up the bat boy. Instant hook.

Gil Imber said...

Obviously, an umpire who hasn't ejected anyone in two years and has tossed all of ten people since 2006 must be an attention-grubbing megalomaniac.

Gil Imber said...

It seems virtually all announcers these days are shameless homers. "Barrett had an opportunity to let Reyes walk out to SS..." Are you kidding? Reyes had the opportunity to not mouth off, throw his helmet toward the umpire, and generally act like an entitled temperamental child.

You sir have just won the Internet.

I do love Ted's Carlucci. One thing I wish I would've bought while I still had the chance.

Gil Imber said...

Well-played, haha

John Gibbons just got ejected by Scott Barry for arguing a trap call. For some odd reason the box score says it was Alfonzo Marquez

Gil Imber said...

Ted Barrett just made another ejection... First base umpire Scott Barry tossed gibbons according to yes network

Gil Imber said...

Watching the entirety live, the umps got this wrong, I think, according to mlb.com Marquez tossed him and someone else, but saw Barry eject someone. Weird play, this is worth a challenge Next year.

Gil Imber said...

Just hearing on the broadcast that Mark Buehrle (not in the game) was also ejected.

Gil Imber said...

It was Scott Barry who tossed gibbons box score is wrong

Gil Imber said...

I didn't see him get tossed.

Gil Imber said...

The second ejection Ccs was mark beurhle true thing Ted Barrett and Scott Barry not Alfonso Marquez accord ing to yes network

Gil Imber said...

It was when yes net Yankees feed went to commercial Barry and Barrett u are correct. Blue jays bad season and are about to go 1-12 vs the yankess

Gil Imber said...

This is a textbook case for all the problems with replay. It's too bad Kawasaki didnt step on 2nd then tag the runner, that would of been 2 outs (but he probably thought it was a catch too)

Gil Imber said...

I lived a hour away from Cece but never had the chance to visit him. Wish I had. I called him once trying to get a price on his CP. Problem was, I was calling from Sydney, Australia at the time.

Tried to keep the phone call to no more then 10 minutes. I talked to him for over a hour.
