Willson Contreras Tries to Help Umpire Understand the Strike Zone, Gets Ejected

Chicago Cubs

With the Cubs *maybe* getting a little momentum, Willson Contreras was up with a runner on base in the 7th when he was called out on a pitch that was inside off the plate.

Contreras, who has been catching all game and knows what calls are going and not going the Cubs’ way, couldn’t help but express his disagreement, and he got himself booted in the process:

It was the line-drawing with the bat that did the trick. Clearly, Contreras was just trying to draw a helpful line for the ump, who is not aware of what the inside edge of the strike zone looks like. Or perhaps it was art. Either way, Willson was tossed.

That’s when Willson got his money’s worth, and took his helpful art to another level:
