holgado said it all!
You're the MAIN reason I come here, Joe.
I know BP is changing but this is NOT for the better.
God bless you, Joe
This is why Joe is one of my favorite writers (of any kind).
Keep writing about bad umpiring.
The only thing worse may be NBA refs but we can leave that for Basketball Prospectus.
Great column Joe,
Just wondering if Gardy should be off the hook here.
Brandon Harris for Jose Morales to face a RH pitcher in the 7th?? Brandon Harris as your DH? WHY???
It was a great game. When was the last time you saw two 1st and 3rd situations, go-ahead/winning run on 3rd, one out and both end in DP's?
Ahh...there is no such thing as a "boring" legal disclosure.
Except for this one.
Where can I find QERA season stats?
Watching DirecTV HD channel where 8 games are on the screen all the time proves your point.
There is NO consistency between umpires from game to game and in some cases within the same game.
MLB must do more than just fine players, coaches and managers for questioning an umpire's lack of skill. They need to weed out the bad and there are some who are not MLB worthy.
THIS is why the Joe Sheehan artcles are MUST READ for me.
I enjoyed your article Joe, but disagree about Reynolds and making a show around him unless it's a show with him only showing things in the field and not doing any analysis.
I can't watch him so I'll take your word for it that he was "all over the place." I think he has an inate desire to be liked so he'll agree with whatever the last person said even if the last person said "Harold Reynolds doesn't have a clue." Plus in his eagerness he chimes in so fast I wonder if he gave what he said an thought.
I have not watched much of the alleged analysis on MLB.com but I love the games.
But the point of the media\'s attention to this is BECAUSE it\'s ARod. This headline: \"Nick Punto used PEDs\" is NOT a major media story.
When the Beatles got busted in some foreign airport for carrying weed it was a big story because it was the Beatles.
When Joey and the Flapjacks do it, no one cares.
Same with ARod. Plus, the ignorance of his public pronouncements have become a story unto themselves. It\'s like the ghost of Dick Nixon is counseling him here.
Is there any place on the stats page where I can find pitchers ranked according to QERA???
I\'m not an HR fan and some of his overly eager desire to say SOMETHING has caused me to rush for the remote.
Also, to start a recent \"news\" segment the announcer began with \"Great News for Reds fans\" and proceeded to say that Jerry Hairston had re-signed.
Not sure what team in what planet could call the signing of JH as \"great news\" but I can\'t believe the Reds can call it that.
I do like Magrane and most of Williams though.
