Earlier this week on Baseball Tonight, they showed this clip of a pitcher and an ump in a bit of a stare down. the pitcher didn't like the balls the ump was giving him. The ump threw one ball over his head, and another in the grass 10 feet ahead of him. The pitcher picked up the ball, looked at it....then rubbed dirt on it in the mound and threw it in for a new ball.

Does anyone know who this pitcher was? I can't figure this out, and i'm looking for a clip of it. any help (just a team name?) would be great.

No idea, but I'd like to see a clip of it too if you find it.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

it was Al Hrabosky, current color man for the St. Louis Cardinals.

He was a lefty reliever back in the day for KC and St Louis.

They called him the Mad Hungarian and after that clip I can surely see why.

He's now the color commentator during the Cardinal's broadcast. I used to see him play at old Busch. Before he would start to pitch the inning, he would step off the mound go through this ritual and harangue the ball...literally bitch at it...slam it in his glove and then begin pitching. The whole stadium would go crazy. He was a showstopper.
