While leaving the field following an ugly appearance Tuesday night Kerry Wood angrily threw his glove and hat into the stands, but MLB has decided not to discipline the Cubs reliever.

Wood turned the incident into a bigger deal by freaking out at reporters who asked about it afterward, replying: “Irrelevant, dude, and why the [bleep] would you even bring that up?”

Dale Sveum later said that he didn’t “condone” Wood’s behavior, but the manager added that “we all know in this game there is frustration that happens.”

There was presumably never any chance of Wood being suspended, but a fine wouldn’t have shocked anyone.
