Friday night’s Mariners-A’s game ended in controversial fashion when the M’s Fernando Rodney struck out the A’s Nick Punto looking on a pitch that arguably was high out of the strike zone.
Punto certainly didn’t agree with the strike three call and threw down his helmet in anger. Punto and manager Bob Melvin both got ejected for arguing even though the game was over. Meanwhile, Fernando Rodney posed in joyous celebration.
You know who really didn’t care for that call at all? Nick Punto’s wife Natalie Punto. She went on Twitter to voice her anger. And it was pretty funny.
Ball was higher then my boobs and not my old boobs… I might of had the same reaction as nick just a dish towel instead of a helmet :/

From now on whenever someone disagrees with a strike call, they should say “Come on ump. That one was higher than Natalie Punto’s boobs!”
Natalie Punto is helping to update baseball vernacular and I’m very grateful for this. There aren’t enough boob references in baseball lingo.
