Nice win, Keppinger and Pauly seem to finally be coming around.

On the down side, after his hot week, Adam seems back to being Adam, and yet another error by our catchers.

Waking up in third place beats hell out of last place. Progress is being made.

That said, can we at least find some middle ground in saying that if we're going to have human umps, they be put through rigorous evaluations and competition every year? How do we keep letting **** umps like Angel Hernandez and Joe West seemingly hold their job forever? If we're going to stick it out with people, can we at least hold them accountable to be the best umpires in the business? Just as players are expected to perform at a certain level, it's becoming ridiculous how many times per night these guys blow a call. I can count three pretty awful blown calls around the MLB tonight alone
I like your second choice. I think they should use technology to rate the umpires. Certainly umpires should be rated both at the minor and major league levels. If a guy like Hernandez is missing calls, send him down to the minors until he shows improvement. You may have an umpire who is having a vision issue, an injury that limits his mobility to move around to get better views or even a guy who is partying too much and not giving his best effort on the job.

I am not a fan of letting technology call balls and strikes, determine goal or no goal, touchdown or just short. field goal or wide right etc.

When we had runners on in the 11th I kept thinking, dammit just keep the ball to the left side of the diamond so numnuts wont have to be involved in the play!

First, I hate using closers in non-save situations. Secondly, you don't want a closer to get warmed up, pitch, then rest between innings and come back out. You're just asking for a blow up.

Good win. Much needed,the way the Tigers are streaking...must stay within 5 games of tigers.

I agree that there are certain umps who are chronically error-prone.
Hernanadez is certainly on that list,along with Marquez,and Buckner.
West also.

I am not for electronic umping,but am for electronic monitoring of umps,and their performance....and for sending them down to the minors for a season,bringing up the best of the minor league guys. These guys are not Supreme Court Justices...they should be subject to demotion.
Hawk better not be reprimanded for his understandable observations.

Rios continues to be Stallion-like...PK coming to life,slowly,and the two out rbis are becoming a habit...love it.
Gimenez seems to be deserving of more starts vs righthanded starters,imo.
He is not a great defender,but neither is Tyler flowers,and at least Hector makes contact more often at the plate,from the left side.
I think if he got more at bats,he might hit for a decent average.

Kepp is starting to make regular contact...progress.

Finally, Danks did his job. Kept them in the game,despite not breaking 90mph...the thing is...I am not certain that he needs to throw 94,as a lefty. Leftys can win with less than overpowering stuff,as we all know from Burls. Can Danks recover his pop? I think so,over time. In the meantime,he can be a crafty lefty, if he throws strikes. This was about the most efficient Danks I have seen in a few years...like it.

"Don't fall down,Tyler!!"

It's now up there with "C'mon,Timo!","Joe...Crede!!", "C'mon,AJ!!"*
"You gotta be beepin' me" and "What are you doing,Wegner?!?!?" as my favorite Hawkisms.

* Actually,Steve Stone uttered this one in ST 2012. AJ had hit an inside the park HR.Neither Hawk nor Stone knew if he'd beat the throw to home plate.AJ
just beat the relay and scored.I found it hysterical.
