From Richard Justice at MLB.com;


Beltre said he has gotten smoked a time or two over the years, and he had a few other close calls. Because of those incidents, he prefers to stand almost directly behind home plate...

Beltre seemed to be standing where he always has stood when umpires ordered him to get back to the on-deck circle. That's when things got out of hand.

Beltre refused. Then he gave us one of those memes for which he has become famous. Rather than go to the on-deck circle, he tried to bring the on-deck circle with him behind home plate.

Can't wait to ask our guy Jensen Lewis about these ump shows. Bad behind the plate, want all the attention that a guy like Mike Trout or Aaron Judge gets, saved by replay. Imagine if the union hadn't been broken awhile ago. Let the players play. Stay out of the way.
