Postgame video: Lloyd McClendon discusses Sunday’s win and ejection

[do action="brightcove-video" videoid="3735085772001"/]

Here’s the postgame video of Lloyd McClendon’s press conference.

I asked Lloyd about his past history with Randazzo in Pittsburgh. In the video he said wasn’t sure what past history I was referring to, but after the presser, we clarified the question.

I was referring to this incident with Randazzo in New York, where he cost McClendon – then manager of the Pirates – a game with a wrong call in 2005. If you look at McClendon’s quotes in the story, it seems to be similar behavior from Randazzo that we’ve seen this series.

When clarified, McClendon said, “I never even left the dugout that time. I didn’t do anything that game.”

Per baseball policy, a local pool reporter was sent to the umpires office to handle any questions. Here’s what Dave Hogg got from the umpires.

Randazzo on why he ejected McClendon? …. “Took his hand and shooed off my call.”

Randazzo on if last night’s ejection played a role in this ejection … “No.”

First base ump and crew chief Brian Gorman, who dealt with McClendon after the game, said this:  “Gestures are just as powerful as words sometimes.”
