Well done. Seriously, Hernandez needs to go. Between him, Joe West, CB Bucknor, and Dan Iasognia, baseball is in a world of trouble until they do something about their umpires. These people aren't held accountable for anything, even when it's clear they instigated a situation by screaming at a player or coach, or merely by missing an obvious call.

Sran are you talking about the Phillies/Braves game where Laird and Gonzalez got tossed? Even the Phillies broadcasters were getting mad at the zone they were giving Lee.

I am. Hernandez was an absolute joke behind the plate. Chipper Jones spent most of the evening posting on his Twitter account because he was so put off by it.

I watched the game and was a little irritated as well. Granted I felt he was calling the game equally. That doesn't excuse that joke of a strike zone though. In fact I thought Maholm would be the type of guy that could really use it to his advantage. Instead he got jacked.

Can we quarter and behead Angel Hernandez? He's obviously the worst umpire to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Only if he stabs someone who argues the strike zone.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Speaking of worthless human beings, John Rocker thinks PEDs will make baseball "a better game." When will people stop putting a microphone in this guy's face?

Least the guy's honest, whatever else you want to say about him and his view of the world.

He's an honest, racist, homophobe. No use for him.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

It's a pity Rocker was only a reliever and thus did not usually come to bat. Would have been nice to see a ball thrown in that guy's face a few times. I'm sure there were dozens of pitchers just waiting to plunk the bastard.
