That called 3rd strike on Sanchez was dreadful...



someone get a printout of the bad calls and hand it to the freaking umpire before an AB. It would be worth gettin' thrown out

I’m watching the Recs game and they just called Votto our on a picth a few inches inside. He’s lettin them have it like a savage.  The umpiring seems to be getting worse.

Look at the other night. Umpire was openly trying to ham it up for a last out strike three. Umps want to be the heroes.

Adams can't hit anything but a fastball and doesn't seem able to identify offspeed very well
Yea, youd think after 7 years, he'd have adjusted to that

Nah, they've always sucked. It's just that the technology (HD, pitch trackers, slow mo, etc.) has made it very visible.

Until MLB begins holding umpires accountable for poor performance expect more of the same.

That won't do it. How long have we been asking for that. They just need to turn to automated strike calls.

The umps do seem a lot worse all of a sudden.  Seemed to start right when the Atlantic league started with the robo strike zone. You’d think that would make them want to be bett.

Charlotte airport is such a dump. The only thing missing from this 3rd world imitation airport are chickens and goats running around.

I'm going to go cut the grass.  Maybe that will get these bats working.

It's amazing that deGrom's pitch count is that high given the strike zone he's gotten.

Taking a step back here, we line up our best 3 starters for this series, spot them 3, 2 and 3 run leads after 2 innings or so, and not one could hold it
