Meltdowns, fisticuffs, and The National Pastime

With my Cubs underperforming and fighting among themselves [YouTube link], I was glad to see they don't have a monopoly on hotheads and outrageous behavior.

The manager of the Mississippi Braves, Phillip Wellman, performed perhaps the greatest on-field managerial meltdown in baseball history this weekend. Good for a laugh, and probably a suspension. Gotta love that grenade toss.

That might just top this classic bit of insanity last year from Asheville Tourists manager Joe Mikulik:

You wouldn't like him when he's angry...

I'm loving the Al Green in the background. It's like a scene from a Tarantino flick.

So did you hear that Wellman only got a three game suspension and Piniella got four games? I ask you.

But damn that clip made me laugh.
