Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer was in a mood Tuesday night during a 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Scherzer was checked multiple times for banned substances, and he finally lost his patience. At one point, he started undoing his pants as the umpires approached him to check him again. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch the hilarious moment below.

You can only push a man so far before he reaches a breaking point. That’s just a fact in life, and I think it’s safe to say Scherzer found his Tuesday night.

The MLB is trying to crack down on pitchers using banned sticky substances to dominate batters, and as you can see, it’s not going over very well.

Whenever an MLB pitcher acts like he’s going to take his pants off, you know you have a problem on your hands.

I’m far from a baseball expert, but this whole sticky substance ban situation seems to be an unmitigated disaster. Constantly checking players for banned substances is just going to annoy everyone involved.

Clearly, some players have no tolerance for it.

Let us know if you think the MLB should keep this up in the comments below.
