Boone and Vondrak A violent altercation ensued, though the Yankees’ comments didn’t stop when Boone stepped off the field, waving a wad of gum at the visitors canoe. With the 1-2 count, the judge said he could hear more as the batting continued.
“There was a lot of chirping in our dugout, and I really didn’t like that it was 6-0 and Booney was thrown,” Judge said. “I was trying to save Boonie by calling a timeout, like, ‘Hey, wait a minute. Let me work here. I kind of want to see who’s twittering in the dugout. It’s 6-0, Boonie got thrown. Let’s go to work Right. I was kind of like, ‘Who’s still talking here?'”
Boone said he was aware of the Sportsnet comment and had when he Went back to the office to hear Schulman and Martinez on the internal feed.
“When I was thrown out, there were some chirps from our side, and then it continued,” Boone said. “I think a lot of us still let them hear it. Judgie is looking, ‘I’m hitting here.'”
As usual, the judge said he thanked Boone for standing up for him. The judge’s question is a continual commentary directed at the referee.
“I feel like after the manager did his thing, our pitchers still need to go out and pitch,” Judge said. “We have to go to work here. I said a few words when I was in the dugout, especially after the game. Hopefully it won’t happen again.”The Blue Jays, who spoke at nearly the same time as the Judges and the Yankees, found the situation curious.
“It’s kind of weird that a hitter would look in that direction,” Blue Jays manager John Schneider said. “There’s a reason he’s clearly looking in that direction. I think we’ll look at that a bit more deeply tonight and tomorrow and make sure we’re doing everything we can to not make ourselves vulnerable to trends, places, pitches or things like that. “Jackson told Sportsnet that he has not experienced anything like it in his career.“I haven’t haven’t seen a batter It’s been done before, so I can’t say what he’s doing,” Jackson told Sportsnet. “Let’s ‘ see what happens. Next time, we would have had a different game plan.… If he knew it was coming, I’m
glad he didn’t do not miss it.”
