    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.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

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

    Jim Mora's tirades are still the best the Playoffs one with the Colts and the We sucked one with the Saints.

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

    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.

    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.
