Nationals' Strasburg ejected for arguing - from the stands
NEW YORK A pitcher getting ejected for arguing balls and strikes on his day off? Nationals star Stephen Strasburg earned one of baseball's most unique ejections probably ever in the third inning of Washington's game against the New York Mets on Thursday. Strasburg was sitting in Section 121 at Citi Field in this socially distant season because hes scheduled to start Friday against Baltimore Orioles. Moments later, Torres ejected last year's World Series MVP, though it took a few seconds to realize who had been tossed. Someone was heard yelling: Youre (expletive) brutal shortly before television cameras captured Strasburg doffing his cap as he walked up the staircase on his way out of the park.
