We've already addressed how Fredi Gonzalez wasn't about to bring in Craig Kimbrel for more than four outs in what turned out to be the deciding loss in game four of the National League Division Series, but deadspin.com had a lip reader take a look at what cameras capture the Atlanta Braves closer as saying.
The results aren't exactly pretty.
"No, I'm mad because I told him, if we're winning after seven, I want to throw the last f***ing two innings."
The best part of the exchange is what the lip reader relays as bullpen coach Eddie Perez's response.
"All right. That's fine."
It's pretty assured Kimbrel let Gonzalez hear about it himself shortly thereafter.
