  1. Bob & Rob proclaiming that Zimmerman didn’t say anything at the exact moment the replay clearly showed him saying Fing BS was priceless

  2. Can’t wait to see what Ramos’s got.

    Zimm did look like he was saying “fucking bullshit” but at the exact same time the ump was raising his arm to toss him– not before. So, that reason’s nonsense.

    Repeat after me, “we no longer are allowed to be upset or upset others.” No mosques “in bad taste.” No expressing how “you can understand” where the Connecticut beer distributor shooter was coming from. And certainly, no being angry with yourself after you just struck out after 1 (maaaaybe 2) questionable called strikes and a caught foul tip strike 3.

    Whether the reason is it’s out of character for Zimm to show emotion like that or you have a greenhorn umpire crew, there’s no excuse for Zimm to get the big bounce in that situation.
