Yasmani Grandal is probably wrong in this situation. Don’t like siding with the umpires at all, but I think blue was right on this one.

After working a 3-0 count, Grandal took a pitch that was probably a strike anyway but is always gonna be called a strike in a 3-0 count. Then he got mad that the 3-2 pitch was later also called a strike. I have no issue with him being mad about that, but to go over the top screaming at the ump like that is too far. It was a very close pitch either way, and I think it was probably a strike anyway. Grandal disagrees, clearly, but when you react the way he did, you gotta expect to get some tongue coming back your way.
