In a GIF that made the rounds on Twitter, a fired-up Travis d'Arnaud appeared to be unsympathetic to the Marlins objecting to Jenrry Mejia's demonstrative save antics.

The only issue?

D'Arnaud insists the lip readers were way off. He was not, in fact, saying something unsuitable for children.

The catcher told Newsday's Marc Carig that he was actually just calling out to Saturday's plate umpire Alfonso Marquez to get his attention.

“I was talking to the umpire,” d’Arnaud told Carig. “Make sure to write that.”
