    Don't know what the metrics say, but I'd be okay with never seeing KB in the outfield again.

    Gotta suck to be Kyle there. Nobody hits a ball more than 80MPH and somehow they get 3 hits, haha.

    Because he nearly made a good play and a bad throw? For his career he's about average to slightly above in LF.

    I love Kyle but he is the unluckiest pitcher in the league.

    Meh. I think umps need thicker skin. I also don't think it matters the player's reputation. If a guy is in your face or arguing an extended period of time, sure toss him. Looking at it from an objective, case by case basis, Willy didn't do anything to warrant being tossed.

    Good that we gave up only 1 run, but who knows if that inning even happens if Willy doesn’t get thrown out.

    This is ridiculous. It's absurd that he got thrown out for smashing his bat. He didn't even look at the ump. Ump needs to realize nobody is watching because he's behind the dish.

    In general, umps should just not be tossing players. Unless something absolutely absurd happens, they need to just shut the **** up and do their job.

    Not because of that play, just in general. I never liked the way Maddon bounced guys all over the place. KB is a third basemen, he should play third unless something weird requires him to play elsewhere.

    That's silly. If we can improve the team by him being in LF we should absolutely do it.

    That fall on the wrist might have helped him!
