    Yadier Molina had the fan ejected in last night's Cards game.

    Hadn't seen this posted elsewhere yet, my apologies if this is a duplicate.

    outtake:
    Ottow was cited for disorderly conduct by police and ejected. He said he was heckling Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

    I may or may not have done some heckling at the old ballyard in my day. Granted, I've never used foul language or anything... but this guy says he didn't either. I'd like to know exactly what happened because if this indeed was just some harmless heckling then Molina is just further proving Brandon Phillips' point.

    Uh... The Cards are a bunch of whining sissy's?

    Do they not realize that every thing that they do adds to this image? This has to be getting under the GM's and Owners skin. ALOT of bad press lately.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Wow. Molina is quickly becoming my least favorite player in the game.

    Molina is quite the crybaby. The manager teaches his players well.

    Brandon Phillips should pay any fine this guy incurs.

    I have no idea what Molina's like as a person, but I know he's a helluva catcher.

    And Brandon Phillips continues to be proven right.

    I remember giving George Hendrick a hard time at a game at Veteran's Stadium. The whole center field section was chanting "Geoorgeee", "Geoorgeee" and whenever a ball came his way, we'd give it to him. After I while you could see it was getting on his nerves. So we did it more.

    Too much beer, I guess. Too many Philly Phans.

    Glub! Glub! Glub!

    Cards = Cubs ? They are starting to sound like the organization that they arrogantly love to make fun of.

    Re: Yadier Molina had the fan ejected in last night's Cards game.

    From a firsthand account of a Brewers fan:

    I was also there tonight and it was one of the better sporting moments I have witnessed in person. Braddock was in a full out sprint out of the bullpen along with the rest of the guys. Balkin Bob did sour it for me. MLB needs to do something about this guy, the way he treated that usher was just terrible. The best part about him kicking the fan out was he didn't have the guts to walk on the same side of the guy, instead he walks to the complete opposite side to point him out to an usher. We could hear him say "guy in the white shirt he's out", and the usher having no idea which one of the 85 guys in the white shirt asks him again who. So Davidson starts to yell at him to get the cops. The poor usher had no idea who he was talking about, and Davidson shows up the usher. And for the umpire to do it in the middle of the inning shows that he truly thinks he is bigger than the game.

    Handcuff for heckling? I thought heckling was part of the game.

    Wow, that sounds totally ridiculous to me. I've heard worse things said (or screamed) during games and no one said anything to that person or people doing it.

    I think "Balkin Bob" screwed this one up


    There was only one problem: the fan never interfered with the playing field. Nowhere in the Major League Baseball rulebook does an umpire have the power to eject a fan who never enters the playing field.

    Love the comments after the article:

    Brandon Phillips was right.

    • Drunken Sailor said on: September 8, 2010, 12:09 pm
    If Molina actually did ask that the fan in Milwaukee be ejected, it is a slap in the face to all the fans who stood and cheered him for standing up to Phillips. Can this Cards season get any stranger? Stay tuned!

    IF this is true that Molina had that guy tossed, Mr. Phillips is a much better judge of character than I gave him credit

    If this was a legitimate duty of an umpire, couldn't he throw out fans for heckling his calls, or for just generally getting on one of the umpires? I don't know about firing him for this one incident, but I think a suspension should be looked at.
