Leave the Umpires Alone, Please.

What the Braves manager thought he was doing versus what others around him saw:

“To this day, I still haven’t argued,” Gonzalez said. “I just asked for an explanation. I said, ‘Why would you think we’re throwing at people in a one-run game or that they are throwing at people in a one-run game?’ It’s not like it’s a 10-run game or something. I was talking to him like I’m talking to you right here and I got thrown out of the game.” »

I don’t understand why coaches feel the need to speak to umpires ever—especially when they are warned not to? Come on.
