    This may be one of the best I've heard where Syndergaard got tossed without a warning.

    Nice find, and you're right grim, that's some damn fine control of the situation.

    That was incredible. Who is that ump? And why does he keep saying, "our ass is in the jackpot now?" What does that even mean?

    I especially liked Utley's reaction. He knows he's an asshole and can get plunked whenever, and seems totally fine with it.

    I kind of wish Thor had just told him he was in Game of Throne so was kind of a big deal.

    I believe the ump is Tom Hallion.

    The ump is Tom Halion, behind the plate for Jonathan Sanchez's no hitter, Strasburg's 14K debut, and the first game in the newest Yankee Stadium. Been fined 5 years back for swearing at David Price, yuck. He handled full Goodfellas Collins quite well there though!

    Came here to post this clip and then ask this question though. I fucking love this phrasing and plan to use it in everyday conversation once I find that out. Think there's an offchance it refers to the 2000 TV movie Homicide: The Movie. Specifically, this line:

    Frank Pembleton: This is not taking a bullet for you, this is you wanting me to toss your ass in the jackpot! You're confessing to a murder, Tim, do you understand that?

    Edit: I genuinely want more of these. Love the fire and intensity of everyone involved, and on some level, a touch of hilarity. Was directed to a specific Weaver ejection from back in the day, which was awesome, as would be some Pinellas, Cox, etc.

    I've never heard that phrase before either. I initially tried Urban Dictionary but then turned to Webster's when one of UD's definitions for "jackpot" was benign and fitting:
    Who knew?

    NYPD Blue used that term almost every episode.

    The really interesting part of that conversation is also how open the conversation is regarding hitting batters. It sure makes it seem like Collins was arguing that Syndeergard needs to have the ability to protect his team and the umpire had a problem with the timing of it, not the intent. I think its totally fascinating.

    "You can't do that, not in that situation. That's the wrong time to do it. Our ass is in the jackpot there"

    Professionally handled by the Ump. Impressive. He told the players that he understood the situation but that the timing was wrong and then handled Collins just laying into him without really punching back.

    I’d pay huge money to get an audio feed like this on every game.

    Why do baseball managers get sooo mad? I’m trying to think of times in my life I’ve been so upset that I’ve ran up to someone and started screaming in their face, and there ain’t that many.

    My ass has been places you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. It watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhuser Gate.

    Manfred saying they have to, because it's part of their collective bargaining.
    Saying MLB needs to show good faith to umps by trying to take it down.

    Umps were promised this was for internal use only, but man, it still is great to get that perspective and as mentioned above, I'd love to have in game on field feed so that you can hear players/umps.
    It'll never happen, but it would be amazing

    Which member of the umpire union filed this grievance about the distribution of a video making umpires look like genius elder statesmen of the game operating at the highest levels of professionalism with deft skill and tact?
