David Ortiz gets thrown out of game, attempts to throw umpire out of game

David Ortiz delivered a single in the top of the seventh inning during Saturday's Red Sox-Royals game. After the hit, Papi gave his lumber a fairly thorough toss into the area surrounding home plate:

Home-plate umpire Bruce Dreckman ejected the Red Sox DH, and after some back-and-forth arguing, Ortiz decided to eject Dreckman. 

Hey, at least he stopped there.

According to MLB.com's Jordan Wilson, Dreckman ejected Ortiz more for a disagreement on pitches earlier in the at-bat than the actual flip. The Red Sox lost the game, 7-4.
