Default Yet Another Terrible Umpiring Call: Bruce Bochy Argues And Gets Tossed

Umpire Blows Tag Call in Giants-Rockies Tilt

Honestly, does baseball need to just fire every umpire it has and start over? How do they justify this crap? What makes this situation interesting is that this crew had previously missed a call at home plate in which Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was incorrectly ruled out after he appeared to slide into home safely. Both plays are included in the provided video clip link, so you're welcome to judge for yourselves.



"I'd say what I think about this, but I'm too much of a class act. Besides, I still have a batting title to win."

I thought this thread was going to be about this play.

Nope. That play has already been discussed in this thread. Someone needs to do something about MLB umpires. There is absolutely no accountability where their job performance is concerned, as any disciplinary actions taken against them are rarely made public, and they're not required to answer questions from the media following a controversial call. The way that Angel Hernandez ducked the media after the blown home run call in Cleveland was pathetic.

Speaking of Hernandez, wasn't Steve McMichael supposed to beat the **** out of him? Why hasn't it happened yet?

On the plus side, the bad calls set up probably the most exciting finish for a major league game that I've seen in years.

Not that it excuses bad umpiring, but at least the Giants today, like the White Sox last night, weren't deprived of a win due to bad umpiring.

Yes, it has made for great theater, hasn't it?

Shouldn't he have been out anyway for running out of the baseline? His foot hit the corner of the grass and he couldn't even reach third with his arm fully extended.

First time I saw it. It is now officially the worst call I have ever seen. And how could the ump, if he had his eye open, not seen who had the ball after the play and not corrected it?
He should be fired immediately. No discipline, just fired.
