Get the umps some glasses, or something

Did anyone see that horrific call the home plate umpire made against the Twins last night? Unbelievable. Are these umps getting worse as of late or what? Check this out: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=290720111

Horrible call. I think the worst call I ever saw was like 07 Yankees vs Seattle at YS. Cano had some guy out by literally like 3 feet and the ump called the guy safe.

Some of these umps are just terrible. Majority of umps are make many good calls and some plays are going to be messed up occasionally when it's a really close play, but that's not the case with last night's play.

The ump shouldn't be having problems with a play right in front of him when the guy is clearly safe.

Oh and btw finish your presentation!

I hate school, have I mentioned that!!! Summer classes should be abolished

Kyle said...

Yeah summer classes are awful. I had them my soph and junior years at college. Not fun.

At least your summer classes will be done soon.

Good luck with the presentation!

I seen over 3 decades of baseball and guess what? This is the worst umpiring I've ever seen. Absolutely, dreadful, there should be instant replay at home plate!I'm very dissapointed with these vision impaired umpires.......

I wonder what the average salary is of a major league umpire

FINISH YOUR PRESENTATION!!!

I tried googling the average major league baseball umpire salary but couldn't find it. I like the NFL refs were it is just a weekend job for them and they all have real jobs during the week.

The best umpire I ever saw was Leslie Nielsen in the Naked Gun movie.

I feel like I have to tell you to finish your presentation.

Anyway, I think we all know where to find two umpires who can step in at a moments notice. They've got the uniforms, they seem like douchebags, and I'm sure they can do just as brutal a job.

I really have been bad with this presentation. It is tomorrow and has to be 20 minutes like. WTF?

Kyle said...

They were at one of the recent Jays games, but the broadcast crew made sure to not get them into any shots. Everyone's sick of those fools.

Hope you finished your work!!!!1 Good luck.

CHristina, heard a rumor that the Boston are thinking about getting Holliday! YEs, Matt the Rockie Holliday. Their golden boy Jason Bay went into a slump amd offensively they are weak, so Holliday might help.
