What is the best manager or player melt down you have witnessed? I'm sure Sparky and Sweet Lou will get some votes, but there have been many others throughout recorded baseball history. The crazier, nuttier, wackier the better.

I was always a huge George Brett fan, so his comeplete freak out after the pine-tar incident was allways a good one for me.

The other famous one is Pete Rose pushing Dave Pallone which got him suspended for 30 games.

We couldn't run the ball we didn't try to run the ball, we couldn't complete a pass we couldn't make a first down..we sucked

I once saw a Hal McGrae video when he went off on the KC press. He was throwing everything he saw! :yikes:

Just about any tirade that Billy Martin went on was a good one

Ask former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda about his opinion of Dave Kingman's performance. Priceless.

A thread about "Best Manager Freak-Out's" with no mention of Earl Weaver? Disgraceful.;)

Lou Brown.

Probably won the pennant with that tirade. I know this isn't an Indians board, but ..........
