Gio And Jones Weekly Rewind 5/30-6/3

TOM VERDUCCI – 6/1/16
MLB analyst

“I thought it was obvious, and the rules state if the umpire thinks he does it on purpose, he doesn’t have to have a warning to eject the player. So you may see more of those ejections, certainly coming right on the heels of that episode in Texas. But I don’t blame the umpire in this case at all, and I don’t expect consistency when you’re looking at something that’s so subjective.”

Davidson head coach

But right now, it’s a perimeter game and everybody wants to be like somebody else.”
