Same umpires from the White Sox-Indians series were doing this game. Once again controversy involving them on a play.

Here's the Yahoo game recap:


The Braves led 4-1 in the fifth when the umpires initially ruled Jose Reyes (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7066/;_ylt=Aln88_Ld9B5hdFohW5MLkLapu7YF) hit into an inning-ending fly ball double play with the bases loaded. Replays showed the ball bounced before center fielder Mark Kotsay (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5846/;_ylt=AkOViTWMT3IbDmAVAoc44i2pu7YF) dove and trapped it.


Randolph argued the call by third-base umpire Bruce Dreckman. With Braves players already off the field, the umpires huddled and eventually credited Reyes with a run-scoring single.



There are so many terrible umpires in baseball now. None, however, are worse than this piece of **** (http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info/umpires/bio.jsp?id=3056). Every game I've ever seen him work has featured some sort of controversy, and he's usually right in the middle of it.

Which is why we need instant replay. And don't throw that "human element" crap at me. That is a term I think Uncle Bud came up with to confuse the feeble-minded.

At least that piece of **** Bruce Froemming is retired now.

Hate or love the Cubs, he screwed Milt Pappas out of a perfect game.

you're absolutely right. If I'm an ump and a guy's got a 3-2 count and is one strike away from a perfect game I'd tell the batter "You better swing cuz unless this pitch hits you or is over your head, you're going to be out."

I used to be against instant replay, but that Cleveland Series among other games made me realize that some of these umps are terrible.
