ST. LOUIS — Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected from Monday night’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, and former Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood was not happy with the umpire who did it.
After Kyle Hendricks lost his no-hitter, umpire Joe West tried to stop a meeting at the mound between Hendricks and the Cubs infielders.
That’s when Maddon came out and had a heated exchange with West, which ended in Maddon’s ejection.
Many fans took to Twitter to criticize West, including Wood. He retweeted several anti-West tweets, and then chimed in with his own.
“I just don’t want him in the post season. Enough of the #JoeShow,” Wood said on Twitter. “OK I’m done. We all know he sucks. Good night.”
The Cubs still beat the Cardinals 4-1. The Magic Number is now 3.
