2010-09-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on all the recent chatter on how umpires have developed short fuses? I must say that I've never seen a fan ejected by an ump for heckling a player before, as Bob Davidson did in Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago. Is it more common than I think it is?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Robot umps now. Seriously, how much worse could it get? I'm sick of reading about obstinate asshole umpires like Davidson and Joe West who labor under the mistaken impression that people are paying to see them exert their authority.

Look, umpiring is a difficult job. Long hours on the road for most of the year, pitifully low pay when you're on the way up, and you're the object of scorn and derision, the bad cop - the guy who hates fun no matter how much you love baseball - every time you go to work. Against those odds, most umps manage to do a competent or even good job, getting 99% of the obvious calls right and doing a reasonable job on plays which require multiple reviews in high definition. I support adding instant replay to all boundary calls (not just home runs) and think it can be used on the basepaths in a fairly efficient manner, too. I think it would do more to PROTECT umpires from controversy than it would cause it, and in doing so perhaps knock some of the chips off the shoulders of these men who develop them over so many years.
