Good to see at least a little accountability as it comes to umpires

Yeah, except he wasn't fired for bad performance, but violating a drug policy. I'd like to see the league hold umps accountable for being bad at their jobs (e.g. Angel Hernandez.)

When I saw the headline that an umpire was fired for drug policy, Angel Hernandez was the first name that came to mind.

Hernandez may pee clean, but he definitely needs an eye exam.

When they fired him did they use the punch out, the upper cut or the lawn mower?
