After being ejected, Treanor continues to make his case.
Matt Treanor had a short night's work last night.
''I voiced my opinion,'' Treanor said. 'I never used any profanities. I didn't think I said anything to warrant being ejected. I didn't show him up by turning around. I know I did mention that the pitch to Dunn was a strike. I went on to say, `You missed two to [Reds leadoff hitter Chris] Denorfia.' He felt like I shouldn't be out there anymore, so that was it.''
Catchers talk to umpires all the time. I guess Larry Young wasn't in a very good mood at the start of the game.
In case you are wondering why Treanor was catching instead of Olivo, Miguel has a sore hand.
Speaking of Olivo, he is on a record setting pace.
If Willis pitches on Sunday, this record is probably a lock. And it probably is even if Willis doesn't pitch.
As of last night, Willis is expected to start Sunday whether it is a meaningful game for the Phillies or not.
I'm sure this is not the way Miguel would like to remembered for posterity. But the soggy potato chip analogy does come to mind.
