Goodness, have we ever seen Manny Machado this upset before? On Saturday night, the superstar slugger was ejected in the fifth inning of San Diego's 14-8 loss to the Rockies. And as you can see in the video below, Manny sure got his money's worth before hitting the showers.

Machado lost his mind arguing balls and strikes with the home-plate ump. He let the expletives fly and didn't hold back in giving everyone a piece of his mind.
“This is just my personal opinion, but I just felt like our pitchers were making some of those pitches and weren't getting calls on it,” Machado said via MLB.com. “I just felt like it was unfair and it changed the momentum of the game and the momentum of the at-bat. I just had to let him know what it was.”

Machado is in his first campaign with the Padres. It's been a bit of an up-and-down spring for him, as San Diego is 34-37 entering Sunday's game and he's hitting a disappointing .261, with 13 homers and 38 RBI.
