Ejections: Alfonso Marquez (2)

HP Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Cubs Manager Mike Quade for arguing a ball call in the top of the 9th inning of the Brewers-Cubs game. With none out and none on, Brewers batter Prince Fielder took a 2-2 slider from Cubs pitcher Carlos Marmol for a called ball three. Replays indicate the pitch was located thigh high, but off the outer half of the plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the contest was tied, 4-4. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 5-4, in 10 innings.

This is Alfonso Marquez (72)'s second ejection of 2011.
Alfonso Marquez now has 8 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (4 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 8).

This is the 75th ejection of 2011.
This is the 40th manager ejection of 2011.
This is Mike Quade's second ejection of 2011.

I thought this might make for a good discussion. It's from Monday night's Mets/Pirates game. Jerry Layne called Jose Reyes for interference on baserunner Jose Tabata, as Tabata was running in between second and third based. I would be curious to see if everyone thinks this was a good call or not.

It's time to get Marquez back into the playoffs... He had another awesome balls/strikes game which is the norm for him. There may not be anyone more on his game of seperating pitches then Fonzie is. How about a game where you miss ONE strike the entire game. WOW!

We'll have a post up soon with a few discussion points throughout the week. Thanks for the topic!

Good Call!

Agreed...as strictly a ball and strike guy, Fonzie is a good as it gets. But there will never be a another ball and strike guy like what we saw with Steve Palermo...best ever. What happened was just not fair to him, his family, and baseball.

I would really love to know what Quade said to Marquez at 31 seconds into the video. You only see Marquez's face for a split second, but his reaction is priceless. I can only assume it was something absurd, as most ball/strike arguments from managers usually are.

He probably said. I'm on the hot seat with my job, so I need to come out here and yell at you. Typical.

Great example by Fonzie of "What you don't say can't be misquoted." Just stood there, took the BS from Quade, & chewed on his gum.

If Bob Davidson made this call and ejection, all the wannabe "MLB umpires" on this thread would be all over him. Bob doesn't back off like Marquez.
