9/27 To be tossed or not

Mike Quade came close to being tossed for the first time as a big league manager. He disagreed with home plate umpire Greg Gibson, who said Carlos Marmol hit Chase Headley with a pitch in the ninth.

“I didn’t believe it hit him,” Quade said. “There’s nothing that’s going to change by [getting ejected] and at that point in the game, I have my say and get the heck out of there. It’s not going to help [Marmol] or the rest of us if I get run there. I didn’t think it hit him and I had to go out there and say, ‘It didn’t hit him.’ In a younger day, maybe. Hopefully, I’ve matured a little bit.”
