Re: Sad day to be a Baseball fan
In all of my years of watching baseball, I honestly do think I have ever seen a HBP that was more obviously intentional than that. I know George likes to defend the umps, but Dempster clearly should have been ejected here.
"A sad day to be a baseball fan" is a little over the top though, wouldn't you say? How about "Umpire messes up a judgement call that turned out to not really matter at all"?
