    Just watching baseball tonight and saw Mariano Duncan, now the 3b coach for the Dodgers, get tossed for arguing balls and strikes. Did anyone else see how this was done? Angel Hernandez basically swept his hand to toss Duncan and then when Duncan came to argue his tossing, he threw his hat to the ground, Hernandez picked it up and gave it to a fan, that was something I've never seen done before.
    If it was Angel Hernandez calling the strike zone, he was probably justified arguing it. He has the absolutely worst strike zone in MLB. And he's got a short fuse - the epitome of what an umpire should not be.

    I provided the link above in my last post, and yes you are correct in stating that CB Bucknor was rated the worst with a tad over 20% of the votes, Then Bruce Froemming with about 16% of the votes, the Joe Brinkman with about 8%, then Joe West with 7%, and rounding out the top five with just a shade under 5% are Phil Cuzzi and Angel Hernandez.

    Isn't Bruce Froemming the one that botched those calls in the World Baseball Classic? Well correct that, I don't know if I would use the term botch here, maybe just had like 4-5 very controversial calls in the WBC, and the bad thing was that they all seemed to be Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back calls and such.

    November 27, 1991 Traded by Los Angeles Dodgers with Tim Belcher to Cincinnati Reds for Kip Gross and Eric Davis. Cin: Bob Sr. Quinn
    La: Fred Claire


    December 11, 1991 Traded by Cincinnati Reds with Bill Risley to Montreal Expos for Willie Greene, Scott Ruskin and Dave Martinez. Cin: Bob Sr. Quinn
    Mtl: Dave Dombrowski

    Geez....with us for not even one calendar month!!!!
    Hm, guess my memory fails me again. I thought Wetteland was traded the day after he was obtained, but I guess not.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I could have sworn that Duncan was only RH.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    i believe he was towards the end of his stint in Philidelphia.



    and isn't Angel Hernandez one of the better ball/strike umpires in the game?
