Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has been ejected for the first time this season for arguing with plate umpire Bob Davidson after a testy at-bat by Nyjer Morgan in the sixth inning.

Nobody in sports drags his feet more than baseball owners — except maybe receivers trying to stay in bounds. They put off drug testing until their sport was syringe-deep in scandal. They put off lowering the mound until an entire league hit .230 (the AL in '68). And they've put off instant replay despite its fruitful use in football, basketball, hockey and even tennis.
But as Davidson noted, camera angles leave room for debate about the kind of ruling he had to make.
