Tuesday night as his team took on the New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon endured a meltdown of epic proportions.

The question has been asked through generations of Major League Baseball.

Why do we love the fiery manager so much?

The Lou Pinella’s, Billy Martin’s and Earl Weaver’s of the world provided us with discussion and folly on more than a few occasions. Perhaps it’s the fact that the big league manager is also human, much like me and you.

In any event, when the club’s head-man goes out to that field, and starts waiving his arms in fury and kicking dirt onto another man’s foot, we eat it up.

On Tuesday night, we were all privy to another gem from an MLB manager.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon took exception to an Alex Rodriguez walk, where he thought the Yankees DH had gone around on the check-swing.

I don’t think it’s humanly possible to make as many hand gestures as McClendon did on this particular night.
