  • Did they blow the home run call on purpose??

    I've seen speculation that Angel Hernandez and his crew intentionally did not rule Adam Rosales shot a home run when it clearly was as a protest against the use of replay in baseball. That will probably never be proven one way or the other.

    Should it be established as fact that crew needs to be immediately fired and banned from future umpiring. If their union protests (and I am a union supporter), screw them. If they strike, call in replacements no matter how poor they may be and live with them until the union submits.

    I view that act, if it can be established as fact, to be a level of cheating even worse than Pete Rose's.

      I agree completely. The difference between the two calls is that the homer was a group effort that required the complicity of the entire crew.

      The strike call brands him a dolt. The homer call brands 4 umps as cheaters.
