Umpires also have supervisors and are punished when they do their job badly. So one umpire talks out of line to Price and then everyone thinks umpires are divas. It is ridiculous. They are the low hanging fruit for criticism since many bad fans blame the umpires for the reason their team lost/won.
The umpires do a great job, the stats back that up. There just aren't many "Umpires does great job, no incidents" articles on Hardballtalk.
