Both Jerry Manuel and Carlos Beltran were tossed in the fourth inning of the game.
Arguing balls and strikes, Manuel came out to talk to the umpire. After seeing the video, it looked as if home plate umpire Brian Runge bumped Manuel, which caused Manuel to flare up and take it to another level.
After Manuel was tossed, Beltran argued his own balls and strikes, and shrugged his shoulders at a pitch he did not think was a strike. Runge started yelling, to which Beltran responded. Runge quickly tossed Beltran, who got up in Runge's face and got his moneys worth.
While I love to see the fire and attitude of the team, it needs to parlay into runs and eventually wins, otherwise it's pretty worthless.
Sandy Alomar Sr. has taken over the managerial duties, while Marlon Anderson picked up where Beltran left off.
Anderson will man left field, Endy Chavez will move to center, and Trot Nixon will shift from left to right.
