SAN DIEGO -- Major League Baseball is telling managers to cool it on arguing balls and strikes, and warning them not to rely on replay help to bolster their beefs. Cheap Swingman Suns Jerseys .MLB executive Joe Torre sent a memo Friday to managers, general managers and assistant general managers that said: This highly inappropriate conduct is detrimental to the game and must stop immediately.The memo was obtained Saturday by The Associated Press.Im still going to react to what I see in front of me, Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday night.Torre, a Hall of Fame manager and former NL MVP, said skippers are increasingly relying on technology from the clubhouse or video room to argue from the dugout. Every pitch and play is monitored by teams in case they want to challenge for a replay review.He called that an express violation of the Replay Regulations, which state that `on-field personnel in the dugout may not discuss any issue with individuals in their video review room using the dugout phone other than whether to challenge a play subject to video replay review.Although disagreements over ball and strike calls are natural, the prevalence of manager ejections simply cannot continue, Torre wrote. This conduct not only delays the game, but it also has the propensity to undermine the integrity of the umpires on the field.Ausmus was ejected for arguing balls and strikes and covered home plate with a sweat shirt earlier this season, and Boston manager John Farrell was tossed during an animated dispute alongside Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.Earlier this month, Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected while arguing from the dugout.On Friday night, Oakland manager Bob Melvin and San Francisco skipper Bruce Bochy got tossed for arguing balls and strikes along with players on their respective teams. Cincinnati manager Bryan Price was ejected Saturday on a dispute about a foul ball.Torre concluded by advising that any manager or coach ejected for arguing balls and strikes hereafter will be disciplined, including at least a fine.Joes the boss, so I guess wed better cool it, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Theres just some days you cant stand over there and not say something. Theyre always making additions, and I get speeding the game up and sometimes that sort of thing slows it down, so itll take a little while to walk through that and see exactly how to play it. But you cant take the emotion out of the game. Joe knows that as well as everybody, but I understand where hes coming from.Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said Torres the memo is a very, very good reminder -- a very strong reminder -- that youre going to get fined or whatevers going to happen if you choose that route. Thats fair.One of the great things about having him in this position (is) hes been in the dugout and he is where he is. I dont know what that lens looks like where he is, but I understand I definitely dont try and do his job, Hurdle said before the Pirates played at Washington on Sunday.I listen to him and I try to honor everything that he throws out there. And I think he can respect also the feelings you have to have in the dugout if you feel things arent working out the way that youd want them to work out or youre not getting calls or youre on the short end of calls sometimes. He just let us know if you go that route whats going to happen, he said.---AP freelance writer Dave Hogg in Detroit and AP Sports Writers R.B.

Even though the Minnesota Vikings have rolled to a 5-0 record, they will use their bye week to possibly add an offensive lineman, and former Pro Bowl tackle Jake Long is among the candidates, according to sources.Vikings right tackle Andre Smith was inactive Sunday with what had been listed as an elbow injury, but sources say? there is concern about a related biceps injury. Smith has denied an NFL Network report that his injury is serious enough for him to be a candidate for injured reserve. The team already has lost left tackle Matt Kalil to hip surgery.The Vikings will work out other linemen, but Long is the most prominent and has some support on the staff if he can prove he is physically stable, sources say.Long was the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NFL draft by the Miami Dolphins when current Vikings offensive line coach Tony Sparano was the Dolphins head coach.
