BTW if you follow along you will know I am very fair in my assessment of umpires. I am quick to criticize as I am to defend.
I think the issue is whether or not O'Nora should have issued a warning after the first pitch. It's a judgement call, but considering it's in Boston and there have been threats from pitchers that they were going to throw at ARod, I don't think anyone would have blinked if O'Nora issued a warning after a pitch was thrown behind ARod.
