6 p.m. and the Reds are on t.v. at this unusual hour because they’re finishing up a series with the Padres with an afternoon game. And what the heck has been up with the umpires this series? After that crap with Edwin Encarnación, then suspending Baker, today the same dummy umpire, Ed Cooper, was getting on Hairston’s case for correctly identifying a balk.
No joke, it’s games like this that make me want to fire all the damn umpires and replace them with robots. I heard that instant replay will be tried out in the off-season. Good for you, MLB! It’s about time that you got to the same spot that football was at ten years ago!
