Umpire Todd Tichenor rules with an iron fist

todd-tichenor.jpgWhile we here in Chicago were basking in the confused afterglow of Carlos Zambrano's ridiculous antics and anti-hydration show of violence, there was all sorts of umpire drama in Minnesota.

During Thursday's Twins-Red Sox game, home plate umpire Todd Tichenor ejected the starting catcher and manager of both teams in the seventh inning. If the name Todd Tichenor doesn't ring a bell, that's because he is relatively new to the bigs.
Todd Tichenor, 32, made his big league umpiring debut in 2007 and had called 81 games, including 17 behind home plate, heading into this season, according to Retrosheet.org. On Thursday, he was filling in for 33-year veteran Ed Montague.
