This might just be the managerial rant of the year

Seattle Mariners coach Lloyd McClendon did not go quietly.

LLOYD MCCLENDON LOST it the other night.

After the Mariners’ catcher Mike Zunino was ejected for disputing an umpire’s call, McClendon rushed onto the diamond to give them a piece of his mind.

The umpires promptly tossed McClendon out of the game, but feeling like he hadn’t got value for money from the rant, the Mariners coach then went around the bases to let every umpire know what he thought of the officiating.

You don’t need to be a lip reader to get an idea of what McClendon was saying, before he left the field to a standing ovation from the home fans.

It looks like the Respect campaign hasn’t made it across the pond.
