Temper temper

Quite simply the most bizarre antics I've seen by a baseball manager in long time. In the vein of Earl Weaver, Billy Martin, Lou Pinella, etc. I saw it on ESPN last night. I don't know what I liked more, the headfirst slide into 2nd (never seen that one before), tossing the base into the outfield (nah...Lou Pinella did that), covering home plate with dirt (Billy Martin already did that), or sweeping the dirt off and then pouring a bottle of water on the plate, cleaning it, and spiking the empty water bottle down on the plate like a football. What a rube. And judging from his unfortunate use of certain words to describe his feelings towards umpires, and lack of remorse, he seems to fit quite well into the Ozzie Guillen style of baseball managers.
