Victorino tossed for arguing balls and strikes—from center field!

This one is ridiculous. Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino was ejected from last night's game against the Marlins by home plate ump Ed Rapuano in the 7th for arguing balls and strikes. At the time, the Phillies were on defense and Victorino was playing in centerfield. Apparently, the threw his arms up at a call and was then rung up by Rapuano.

Here's a video of the ejection.

Can you believe that? Victorino was about 300 ft. away from home plate! Now that's awful umping.
