Torii Hunter’s post-ejection tantrum Wednesday, which included removing his uniform and throwing it onto the field after making physical contact with an umpire, has earned the Twins outfielder a two-game suspension and undisclosed fine from MLB.

Hunter is appealing the suspension, naturally, so he’ll be able to play in the meantime.

Here’s the video of Hunter’s meltdown, so you can judge for yourself what the proper punishment should be:

Hunter also claimed afterward that the umpire Mark Ripperger was intentionally making bad calls against him as “revenge” for previous complaints.
