GIF: Justin Turner spikes helmet into Omar Quintanilla
Mets infielder Justin Turner had a disagreement with the home plate umpire on Thursday and teammate Omar Quintanilla was the casualty.
Mets utility infielder Justin Turner had some issues with home plate umpire Doug Eddings during Thursday afternoon's game against the Phillies, mostly with balls and strikes. He struck out looking on a borderline pitch in the fifth inning and didn't appreciate the call, so Turner slammed his helmet in the dugout. Double play partner Omar Quintanilla happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong (right?) time:
Quintanilla is the star of the show right here. First he crotch-grabs in the direction of the umpire, then he takes the helmet to the head, then he gives Turner a quick dirty look, then he goes back to business as usual. It's perfect.
