Maddon is Not Worried About Umps

The Rays have had a lot of run-ins with the umpires this season. David Price and that whole deal with Tom Hallion. Joe Maddon’s multiple ejections. But Maddon tells Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times that he’s not worried about retaliation or getting boned on future calls:

“You only get a bad reputation if the complaints are not warranted,” he said. “I think if you cry wolf, if you argue at the inappropriate times, if you’re always on the field just to make noise, that’s different. But I think if they’re warranted, I think then you gain even more respect.”
