How often do you see a manager tossed anymore? Not often. Let alone see both managers get tossed — and on the same play! That’s what happened last night when the umpires didn’t notice that Andrés Giménez called for time and proceeded to argue about it. Loudly. Here was Tito’s issue in his own words from Mandy Bell:

“[Giménez] pointed to us. I think everybody could see it,” Francona said. “[Home-plate umpire Ron Kulpa] said that [Giménez] was already engaged with the pitcher. I said, ‘No, he wasn’t, he stepped out and pointed.’”

The Guardians still won the game, 5-4, thanks to clutch doubles from Amed Rosario and known hitter Austin Hedges.
