  • Ben Zobrist earned his first career ejection thanks to one hell of a zinger

The Chicago Cubs second baseman took issue with a called third strike from home-plate umpire Phil Cuzzi in the ninth inning and was thrown out.

Then, after the bottom of the eighth inning ended, Zobrist walked over from the on-deck circle and had one last chat with Cuzzi, this time telling him, "that's why we want an electronic strike zone", which promptly got him ejected.

Carlos Tevez is relishing the chance to reunite with Lionel Messi
Lionel MESSI will not get called-up for the Argentina National Team this year. Messi has never won a major global title with Argentina.

Ben Zobrist figured plate umpire Phil Cuzzi was going to give him the boot regardless, so the Chicago Cubs veteran didn't hold back during his first career ejection. "It is what it is". Why leave something so vital - like balls and strikes - up to the subjective interpretation of one person when every broadcast tracks the strike zone electronically? Zobrist, despite being extremely animated toward the umpire, stayed in the game.

I won't turn this article into an argument for electronic strike zones, but Zobrist speaks the truth. "Tough situation for that to happen, but he's probably going to look at it and not be too happy with himself". So, as you can imagine, he was asked about the moment after the game.
