Default Someone must have really got John Russell Mad

Because on Strike 3 Call that not only ejected Adam LaRoche, he blew a fuse and got angry enough to end up getting tossed.

And the Umpires should have listened to him AND LaRoche. The Replay from FSN CLEARLY revealed that the Pitch was WELL OUTSIDE OF THE STRIKE ZONE and LaRoche DID NOT Swing at it.

I hope the MLB forces all umpires(INCLUDING THE MILB ONES!) to go back through schooling and RE-EARN their certifications neccessary to become an umpire in the MLB and MiLB. This season has had the most blown calls by umpires ever.
