    Chipper ejected while on DL

    Saw this at SI...

    Don't see this happen very often.

    In last Saturday's Braves-Marlins game, Chipper Jone was ejected from the game while on the DL.

    Ok, do not let Brandon Phillips see this. We don't want to start anything with the Braves, too.

    So, the umps have ejected a guy on the DL and a fan. What next? The organ player?

    I can only hope that if Jones comes back next year, Eddings is behind the plate for Chipper's 2011 debut.

    This ejection of an organist was told to me from a first hand source.

    That was the first one that came up when I Googled it - I was just about to post it, when I ran into the other article. I guess umps have always been a bit touchy.

    Not so much touchy but once you open the door to let the PA announcer, organist or whoever to get cheap shots in at the umpires and rile up the crowd then you need to put a stop to it.
