Nationals Manager Dave Martinez was not happy with that Howie Kendrick had been called out on a check-swing and let the umpire know about it. His problem with the call was the home plate umpire never asked for help from the first base umpire.
Martinez wasn’t leaving until he was ejected and once he was ejected he lost his mind. He kicked dirt, threw hit hat down and even chestbumped the umpire.
Some classic moves by Martinez. We just needed him to take a base or throw all of the bats on the field to really go old school manager on the ump.

Martinez is on the hot seat and is taking his frustrations out on the umpire, which is always entertaining. Forget about computerized umpires, we need more of these moments in baseball, not less of them.
