Re: The "age" of diva umpires
MLB umps are absolutely the worst professional referees in sports and absolutely the most arrogant and powerful. The game really needs to move towards lessening their power and role in baseball. Would love to see the game eliminate 1-2 umps per game. The technology exists to do that right now. Or at the very least institute some type of challenge system like so many other pro sports already have (ie NFL and Tennis). Their calls are relatively easy compared to what NBA and NFL refs have to deal with and yet they seem to get a large proportion of calls wrong all the time..
