In case you missed it, long time umpire Joe West engaged in a 17-second staredown with Giants ace Madison Bumgarner on Thursday. It was just the latest embarrassing showing of conduct on the part of West. Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins made a pretty amazing callback to the incident during Friday’s game against the Rockies.
Rollins hit a triple into the left-center field gap in the top of the first inning. After sliding into third base safely, he requested time out from West before freezing in place and jokingly mocking him with a staredown. Check it out below:

Bless you, Jimmy Rollins.
