I much prefer that to the ump pursuing the argument which, short of the player dropping to his knees and kissing the umps ring, is just going to end with the player being ejected anyway. Portray that as the ump being nice all you want, but from here it looks like a petty case of little man's syndrome where the ump had already made up his mind but wanted to show the world who is boss.
