It also kind of looked like dramatics from the home plate umpire. I can understand why Yadi was mad because that ball wasn't called a strike all night long but he can't lose his cool.
By the way... Dotel can still bring it against right handed batters. Even though he is 1000 years old, right handed batters are only hitting .143 against him.
