Default The RKM Umpire Watch Thread

Surprised no one posted this, but it's yet another blown call by a Major League umpire. And who should find his way into this mess, but none other than the fattest man on the planet.

Edit: For the record, every time a Major League umpire screws up, I'm going to start a thread about it. These maggot mother****ers deserve no less than to be strung up by their balls.

I just don't what to say. However, I'm pretty sure that zero MLB umps read WSI.

Do us a favor and don't start a new thread every time you need to vent about an ump and just post to this thread. We really don't need 300 new threads every day when an ump makes an incorrect call.

By the way, how do you define "screws up?" Better yet, don't tell me.

I agree, though that's probably because most Major League umpires don't know how to read.

What makes you think the number is three hundred? They're screwing up far more frequently than that.

I'm going to answer it anyway: I know it when I see it.

How will you monitor the umpires' performance? There are as many as 15 games per day. At an average of three hours per game, it would take you 45 hours to monitor one day's worth of games. You will fall behind right away since it will take you 2.5 days to monitor each day's worth. Oh, I'm sorry to hear you lost your job (how else will you have the time to monitor the games?).

Who says I would do it all myself?

It only takes about 15 minutes or so to watch every pitch of a game on MLB.tv, once a game is over.

But I wouldn't want to encourage him...

Who says I'll be doing the leg work? I could always hire someone to watch the games and report back.

It looks a lot better when you can see who he was punching at.

Umpire Confusion During Cubs-Mets Game

I couldn't help but think of Little Big League when I saw this.

What about the Sox game where the batter hit a ball off the wall, which never left the park, the Sox player tagged the runner out between 1st and second, yet the umpires awarded him second base as a ground rule double after they mistakenly called it a homerun? Now that was crap.
