4. Carlos Gomez (Astros)

I’ve lost count of how many times Gomez has caused the benches to clear in his MLB career. There’s a fine line between playing with passion and being a hothead, and the former Brewers star falls into the second bucket.

In this season alone, he’s acted a fool on two separate occasions against the Giants: calling out Madison Bumgarner after a heated at-bat and throwing a fit after a stolen base was overturned.

Grab some pine, meat.
