10:14 AM ET 07.28 | It's no secret Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has a temper. You don't get the nickname Big Papi without having the machismo and girth to back it up. But Ortiz went a little crazy during the Red Sox's 7-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night. After believing he drew a walk on a 3-0 pitch in the seventh inning, Ortiz went on to strike out during his at-bat. He then argued with home plate umpire Tim Timmons until he was back in the dugout -- and that's when Big Papi really got mad. Ortiz took out his frustration on the clubhouse phone, smashing it to smithereens just across from teammate Dustin Pedroia, who was showered in debris. Ortiz was promptly ejected after his dugout tirade and had to be restrained by teammates and coaches when he tried to yell at umpires on the field.

just a chemical imbalance. His personal trainer will figure it out. He almost hurt the Gnome in the tirade. that would have been hard to explain.

Not excusing Ortiz but this is the worst umpiring crew in MLB. They moved up the road from DC, where they had just finished blowing calls in the Nats/Pirates series.

The words "shut up and play" cover the Umps every blatant bad call. They have it made. It was easily a high ball four. The Ump took offense that Ortiz stepped backed off the plate well before the ball arrived and called a strike just to get him back in there. "That'll learn ya"
