Things got testy Sunday afternoon between some Mets players and home plate umpire Toby Basner.
The crux of the issue seems to have been Basner’s strike zone, which certain Mets thought was a little too generous throughout the day.
Wright for his part did not go quietly. Cameras caught the Mets star yelling at Basner from the dugout after his ejection.
In GIF form:
You don’t need Jerry’s deaf US Open ball girl girlfriend to lip read what Wright is saying there.
“You’re the worst I’ve ever seen!” Wright yells at the rookie ump.
Not a particularly great weekend for umpires working games for the New York teams, what with this whole dust up with the Mets, and the previous mess in the Yankees-Red Sox game that saw a clear replay call at second base being blown.
It might be time to consider robot umpires, I think.
