Deadspin: What Do We Think Of This Old Video Of An Umpire Handling An Extremely Pissed Terry Collins?

We need more of these umpire sound clips and less of A-Rod repeatedly exclaiming, “The Toddfather.”

The context is important. Utley’s notorious takeout slide in Game 2 of the 2015 National League Division Series nuked the right fibula of Mets infielder Ruben Tejada. Utley was suspended for the next two games of the series, and ultimately MLB instituted what has come to be called the Chase Utley Rule, essentially banning (but not eliminating) takeout slides. Syndergaard’s pitch in 2016 was assumed to be an effort at retaliation, even all that time later. Possibly it was just a wild fastball? Either way, as you can imagine, Terry Collins was quite pissed.

Maybe you have seen this next video before. I have not, and I find it absolutely fascinating. It shows the same sequence, but this time with clear audio of crew chief Tom Hallion interacting first with Syndergaard, and then a fuming Terry Collins: ...

So what do we think, other than that this is a very cool look at what’s being said in those blustery manager-umpire showdowns? I’ll admit, I always imagined the umpires saying #### like DON’T YOU ###### RAISE YOUR ###### VOICE AT ME I’M ###### IN CHARGE HERE TERRY! This is very much not that. What say you?
