BLS: Madison Bumgarner gets into an intense staredown with ump Joe West

Get a room, fellas…

San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner has a reputation for being one of the more fiery pitchers in baseball. And Joe West has a reputation for being — well, how should we put this nicely? — the most contentious ump in the game. And that’s not just our opinion. You need only to search West’s name on the Internet to see words like “awful” and “idiocy.”

So you can see how the combination of Bumgarner and West could be combustible. And, to little surprise, it was Thursday night.

WATCH: Buster Posey ‘sorta’ handles other kinds of deliveries

There’s no doubt that Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants is a top hitter and a skilled catcher, ready and eager to handle the delivery of most any teammate except possibly for Tim Lincecum.

But is he ready to handle the delivery of a baby?

That’s the question this TV commercial for Esurance asks. He’s “sorta” the woman’s doctor. They both wear gloves. And they always deliver in the clutch. Right?
