Great call by Hudson... The 2nd angle will show you

Very fast trigger by Hudson, I'd imagine Bruney must have said the magic words or something really out of line, personal, racist, or otherwise.

He had a fast trigger last week too when Yunel Escobar of the Jays got tossed at first base. Sensitive much?

You can see from Hudson's body language that Bruney said something pretty bad. There's a moment of "wow" before he hooks him...the universal Official's "did he really say that?" look.

It was obviously something beyond the pale. Bruney said later that it was pretty foolish (although he did't clarify what he said) and seemed remorseful. In the video, you see Ozzie just kind of shrug his shoulders after Hudson tells him the reason for the toss. Good job by Hudson for not engaging Bruney in some foolish war of words.

This is a great call and and an even better ejection. No matter the situation you cannot argue umpire's judgement which is exactly what Bruney did. My bet is that he told him he was terrible or something of that nature.

After watching the YES telecast I agree with Bruney's ejection. They did a close up on Bruney and I read his lips saying "That's f****n' B**ls**t. You will get ejected everytime if you say that.

I don't really see any conclusive evidence either way. I'm not saying the call was wrong, and it was definitely too close for Bruney to be upset, but as it says in the link, there is a "cloud of dust" obscuring this one. Why have inconclusive as a status if you're not going to use it?

The announcers for the white house need to check themselves. Terrible announcing. Especially the "come on" comments.
