We Have An All-Time Post-Ejection Freakout, Compliments Of Brennan Metzger From The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks
As there isn't currently enough room for me in my garbage can, I would appreciate no one telling Brennan Metzger that I don't think that questionable strike three call was egregious enough to warrant the fuss he put up following it. I can't speak for how the first 6.5 innings were officiated, but if I'm taking that clip at face value than I'd say the amount of fuck's he flung in the direction of the umpire was disproportional to the disgracefulness of the call.
That being said, I do appreciate him earning every bit of his ejection. It's too often that booted players take their dismissal in stride, but - between the commitment shown in literally taking out the garbage and the hilarity of him telling an umpire to both get and live inside it - that can't possibly be said about Fargo-Moorhead's own Brennan Metzger. There will be no coulda, woulda, shoulda when he gets back to the clubhouse. When he hops in the showers there will be no retrospective over-analysis of his own battle cries in the war of words, as he left it all on the field in providing both a visual aid for his trash talk and a new workspace for the Oscar the Grouch of independently run Minor League Baseball. After managing his anger and watching it back, I speak from experience in saying he might have a regret or two about he reacted to a simple strikeout, but he won't be left thinking that he didn't milk that ejection for all it was worth and that's really all that matters after your evening officially gets ended prematurely.
