Manny Acta Ranks Joe West as Fifth Best Umpire (http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/05/14/manny-acta-thinks-joe-west-is-the-fifth-best-umpire-in-baseball/)

He might be the fifth best in the Babe Ruth league that plays near my apartment complex. There's no ****ing way he's the fifth best in Major League Baseball (though he could be the fifth largest).

The world is full of stupid subjective lists that should carry no weight with any thinking person. I just saw a list that had Elvin Jones the 50th best drummer of all time. Elvin Jones is the gold standard for drummers. Joe West is not the gold standard for umpires. What were you thinking Manny?

Maybe he meant out of a four man crew. :scratch:

A sign of how wrong Acta is, out of the 5 umpires listed i've only heard of 2 names. West and McClelland neither of which I would consider a top tier umpire.

Acta is actually brilliant.
He knows that he wants to be back managing one day, and he knows that of all the umpires he will face, West is the most likely to read this list, and the most likely to allow his performance to be affected by it.
So he puts him on the list to stay in the fat arrogant bastard's good graces.
Way to plan ahead, Manny.

True. If there's one thing we're certain that Joe West cares about, it's how much pub Joe West gets, because it certainly isn't about getting calls right.

If most fans wouldn't trust him in the local Little League championship, why would anyone consider him great?
