Umpire Gary Darling’s gum gets in Bobby Valentine’s face during argument (Video)

Bobby Valentine earned his first ejection as Red Sox manager Friday night. And, boy, was it a doozy. Valentine came out to argue a close play at first base as the Sox were trying to mount a late comeback in the ninth against the Phillies. Umpire Gary Darling disposed of Valentine before long, but not until Bobby V got an incidental face full of Darling’s Bazooka gum mid-expletive. Enjoy:

Here’s another look at the Great Gum Exchange. Valentine’s reaction is amazing:

    Having a manager get 1 challenge per game on a close play would have resolved this fine.
    Baseball would rather have the wrong call and a fight.
