Andre Ethier was ejected in the eighth inning of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night for apparently arguing balls and strikes. He also may have been upset over Brewers pitcher Michael Gonzalez throwing a pitch over his head on an 0-2 count and not being warned, but none of that really matters.
The real takeaway here is the death stare Ethier shot at home plate umpire Dan Bellino on his way from the dugout to the clubhouse. If you want to look at it as a staring contest, it’s probably safe to say Bellino won if only because manager Don Mattingly and bench coach Trey Hillman dragged Ethier away before he got himself into more trouble.
And you thought this death stare was the most intense one we were going to see on the baseball diamond this season? Think again.
