That's the worst ejection I've ever seen. Holbrook shouldn't be umping MLB games if he actually thinks Gausman was throwing at the batter.
Even if he was throwing at him, it's infuriating in that the Red Sox pitcher throws at Machado and it's an automatic warning to both clubs, now if Baltimore throws at a guy, their team is at a disadvantage with a pitcher tossed and Boston gets away with it. Then next game a curve ball that hits the guy leads to an automatic ejection.
MLB needs to change the rule that it's not simply a warning, if the Umpire feels you threw at a guy like the Machado one game before, automatic ejection for the pitcher and not warnings to both teams.
