I agree it was huge. But it he didn't walk up and put the ball on tee for Heyward. He didn't make Mattheus throw balls. The Nats lost that game, not the umps.
Of course not, but that blown call had an impact and that's unacceptable.
I can totally live with my team sucking and losing, I don't like it, but I can live with it. Having the course of a baseball game negatively impacted by incompetent officiating is galling on every level.
It's the HUBRIS from the jackasses who are paid to GET THE CALL RIGHT yet simply refuse to, that I cannot abide by.
Nor should I
