Damon ejected, but for questioning a call on Matsui's swing, not his own

Now an international celebrity, umpire Bill Miller just ejected Johnny Damon for politely questioning a checked swing call. But NOT on a swing of his own. Damon questioned a call Miller had given Matsui. Damon came up 2 batters after Matsui, who'd received the call (the Yankees' 3rd such of the night in Toronto). Just for the heck of it, I checked this vegasinsider report that lets you know various umpires' scoring habits. The chart last updated 1/06, wasn't too revelatory of Miller, but others had interesting numbers. (Update: After the game, Sterling says Damon said whatever he said from the on deck circle, so I don't know how polite that was, but apparently not in a loud tone, etc.)
