Somebody recently posted me with a question asking about the decline in umpiring. It generally hasn’t been good. Dale Scott at second completely blew a call on Jose Reyes in the seventh. Not even close.
Hey Dale, there’s a second game, you’re not getting out of here early anyway so you might as well either get it right or your eyes checked.
I used to have a daily insert in my notes called “Blown Call of the Day.” I might have to bring that to life again. And, these are just calls in the field. Balls-and-strikes is another issue.
