No excuse for calling it a ground-rule double

Discussion in 'The Whine Cellar Forum' started by 2314@work, May 19, 2010.

  1. No reason in the world the umps at the Ranger game had for NOT reviewing Josh Hamilton's home run. Good gosh, that's why they have the technology available for replay.
    Reason given was umps said no need to go to replay.
    Replay clearly showed it cleared the wall.
    So, what really happened is, an umpire saw something that didn't happen. Uh, I think that means he is unqualified to call MLB.
    Being bull-headed is another reason for dismissal.
    Should be fired. No argument. Bottom line.
     
  2. Also, the ump making the call delayed and seemed uncertain, so they should have gone to the video.

    Good thing you've never made a mistake in your life.

    The problem is there's a rule and technology in place, and there should have been a review. It was in question. Not sure how much Wash argued for it, but it seemed like the ump making the call was uncertain initially.

    Methinks I'm a Rangers homer and my team got robbed. No reason for the umpiring crew to go review the video per the rule.

    You are right, 2314. Only a fool would argue.

    Lomez, you are wise.

    Because he missed it to begin with doesn't mean he is unqualified to call MLB. It means he made the wrong call. Happened all the time before they had review. However, have no idea why they didn't review it. Probably because nobody on the Rangers (including Hammy and Wash) fussed about it. Bet you money had Wash came out and said his piece and threw a fit about it they would have took a look. Elvis is about to get it done right here anyways and then Frankie will shut it down in the 9th (did I really just say Frankie was going to shut it down??)

    Because ump too bull-headed and egotistical to believe he could ever be wrong.
    Grounds for dismissal. Blatant rejection of written rules. Plain and simple, didn't do his job.
    All bases (no pun intended) should be covered AT ALL TIMES.
    He, obviously, is an an unqualified umpire.
    And FOAP, don't just argue with me to impress your boyfriend, Shack.
     
  12. How about the Yankees protesting their game last night with Boston on grounds the Red Sox were allowed to let a reliever take all the time he wanted on a chilly night to warm up even though there was no ruling on the field of an injury to the pitcher ...

    Yankees have nothing to [Deleted] about.
    The umps cost the Rangers a run and now the game is tied in the 9th.
    There had better be retribution.

    I'm not arguing with you. I just don't think because an ump missed a call that it means that he is unqualified to be an MLB ump. I am sure Durwood Merrill missed 100s of calls in his day but he was considered a great ump....

    How about when Josh Hamilton just ran to second base on a fly out vs KC a few games back without tagging up, and NOBODY on the entire Royals team noticed. Probably cost them that game. Also might have cost Hillman his job.

    Actually, 2314 once made a mistake, just to see what it felt like. Stay thirsty my friends.

    Wow! They found a way to win, again.
    I think this is a good sign.
    Ump off the hook.

    Good. Glad you see things my way and realized you were wrong about the ump being unqualified. :biggrin:

    I just hope - when the ump sees the tape - he feels shame.

    Hate to see that happen to Hillman
