CROWD: Oh!

YANKEES FAN 1: He has given us… His chair!

YANKEES FAN 2: The chair is the sign. Let us follow His example!

YANKEES FAN 1: Let us, like Him, hold up one chair and let another be stacked against the wall, for this is His sign, that all who follow Him shall do likewise.

YANKEES FAN 2: No, no, no. The chair is a sign that we must gather chairs together in abundance!

YANKEES FAN 3: …the chair?! No, follow the Gourd!

YANKEES FANS 1 and 2: Oh, get off!

Whatever the case, the Cubs gotta pay for those Wrigley Field renovations somehow:

Donaldson ejected for kicking dirt on plate after home run

Minnesota’s Josh Donaldson managed to get ejected while hitting a home run.

Donaldson barked at plate umpire Dan Bellino for the second time in the sixth inning of a 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

With the score 2-2, Bellino called a strike when the 2015 AL MVP checked his swing on a 2-0 pitch from Reynaldo Lopez.

Manager Rocco Baldelli came out to speak with Bellino, and Donaldson homered down the left-field line on the next offering. After rounding the bases, Donaldson kicked dirt at home plate as he crossed it.

Bellino ejected him immediately, and Donaldson, realizing he had missed home plate, returned to the plate to touch it and then argued as he kicked more dirt on it.

Donaldson also had argued with Bellino on a 1-1 breaking ball in the first inning that appeared to be high but was called a strike, leading to a strikeout.

“We need Josh on the field, out there playing, and at third base,” Baldelli said. “That’s when we’re at our best. And so that’s really the end of it. I think we can move past it at his point, and go from here.”
