Was Brett Lawrie or Umpire Bill Miller More to Blame for Lawrie’s Helmet-Throwing Outburst?

Brett Lawrie may have earned himself a four-game suspension from MLB for spiking his helmet and hitting umpire Bill Miller, but Miller hasn’t gotten away scot-free from the incident, either.

Due to the questionable nature of the last two strike calls on Lawrie, many have called for some discipline for Miller or at least a little more accountability for the men in blue. On the other hand, Lawrie should accept some responsibility for his actions as well, surely.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers who they think is more responsible for Lawrie’s outburst. Check out what they have to say and vote in the poll below.
