The New York Yankees’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday saw some early fireworks, including the ejection of Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone in the second inning (along with Brett Gardner banging his bat on the clubhouse walls and roof) for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Brennan Miller. And that was a remarkable ejection, because Boone’s entire profane post-ejection rant against Miller was picked up on hot microphones on the YES broadcast. Here’s video of that, via Twitter user @Jomboy_:

“My guys are fucking savages in that fucking box and you’re having a piece of shit start to this game. I feel bad for you, but fucking get better. That guy is a good pitcher, but our guys are fucking savages in that box, our guys are fucking savages in the fucking box, tighten it up right now.” Boone’s rant there is quite impressive. And it’s interesting to hear exactly what an ejected manager says to an umpire.
