Early in his team’s game against the New York Mets on Saturday, Washington Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon was called out on strikes. It’s rather apparent that Rendon didn’t agree with umpire Marty Foster’s strike call. But he refrained from saying a word, only to drop his bat in disgust.
Apparently, that was enough for Foster to toss Rendon from the game. Check the sequence out here.

What exactly did Rendon do to get thrown? Please tell us, Mr. foster.
It really is a travesty. It also cost the Nationals one of ther best hitters for the remainder of the game. We will be interested to see how MLB reacts to this, but a suspension being handed down to Foster wouldn’t be over the top.
