    Proclaimed this idiot-assed ump. This is the fourth such indefensible call he has made tonight. This moron should be banished from MLB

    Just sayin

    And in the bottom of the 9th, full count, 2 outs, Mr Magoo yells "Ball Four!" for pitch number 6 below.

    Really, is there no accountability for these guys?

    Looks like he had two sets of strike zones, or he had big bet on the game.

    I wonder if there was any chance that this call was a "makeup" call for one he had blown before. I umpired baseball (Little League, Junior League, and Senior League) for years and saw multiple umpires that did this. "Well, I know he was safe, but I missed a call against them earlier. This makes up for it." I never, never liked it. If I had a bad call, and it stood, I simply continued plying my trade. Missed calls are part of the game. There is no point in artificially changing the game by introducing more bad calls.

    They have the technology, they should use it. Some of these guys are just idiots

    That's a tough job. I'd be terrible at it.

    I would absolutely be unable to umpire or even make calls at the bases. As far as using technology I have mixed feelings about it. Does everything have to be turned over to technology because it's available ?

    It's important to follow the script.

    "Make up" calls are an excuse for missing the second call. :oops:

    Was it Angel Hernandez, or maybe Balkin' Bob Davidson behind the plate?

    CB Bucknor is a guy I'd also add to the list. He's terrible.

    Doesn't look like a make-up to me: each call was to the benefit of the Evil Empire.

    Yeah, I see that now. I didn't watch the game. Some umpires are better left on the bases and not behind the plate.
