Terry Francona of the Guardians is a constant phenomenon who has contributed valuable experience years to the team. However, his one-act backfired and he has been sacked from his profession. Terry Francona of the Guardians recently unleashed a wild outburst on Ump, saying, ‘F* You, F* You.’
On Monday, there was pure mayhem during the Guardians vs. Angels game. Cleveland manager Terry Francona was dismissed after throwing repeated F-bombs at an umpire and L.A. Phil Nevin, the manager, was fired minutes afterward.
At Progressive Field, a wild situation unfolded in the bottom of the seventh inning. Tito thought Guards star Andrés Giménez was struck by a Ryan Tepera pitch, but the call was reversed. Francona stormed onto the field, pleading his case. After roughly 30 seconds of back-and-forth, he was ejected from the game.
The squabbles didn’t stop there, because Tito, who is known for being an all-around pleasant man, began getting rated R with his outburst. As tempers began to rise, Francona let many “f*** yous” fly… He eventually made his way to the clubhouse.
As it turned out, that was only the beginning, because when play was finally restarted, the Halos captain was irritated that Tepera was not given more time to warm up. The same thing happened to Nevin, who was also sent to the showers early.
The Guardians eventually won the tense game, 5-4. The night was loaded with intrigue as both teams gave each other a challenging match. However, what are your thoughts on the feud between the umpire and Francona? Let us know in the comments. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more information.
