Anyone else want to see Brett Lawrie getting tossed from last night’s game again? Yep, I thought so:
I appreciate that Brett Lawrie reacted like a petulant child, but the scenario as a whole was pretty farcical. The umpire was just as bad with the way he reacted, regardless of Lawrie’s reputation around the league.
What was most interesting, was the way the fans reacted, spewing their venom and hatred towards the umpire. Which is interesting, because I bet a lot of these same people will today be among those criticising Lawrie for the way he carried on.
Personally, I’m not here to defend or attack the Blue Jays third baseman. (Although some of the rumours circulating about him on the internet are beyond ridiculous.) Either way, the Canadian continues to be one of the most polarising professional athletes in Toronto.
If you have any tips or information about any of Toronto’s sports teams, please email me at Englishpaul@hotmail.co.uk
