  • Is Angel Hernandez the Worst Umpire Ever?

    In Game 3 of the ALDS, three of his calls at 1B were overturned by replay. Sabathia was b!tching about him last night. Pedro is no fan of him, either. Yet he has the cheek to complain that he doesn't get a WS assignment, to the point of suing MLB based on racial discrimination.

    Either him or Joe West.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

      Angel certainly has his problems. To be fair to him the other night, several of those plays at first were extremely close, and could only be verified by slow motion replay. One was pretty obvious, but the others were really tough.

      Someone else who comes to mind is Eric Gregg, he of the trapezoidal strike zone. I'd put Eric in the running.

        Among current umps, Angel's got the worst combo of incompetence and lousy attitude. C. B. Bucknor is also terrible but he seems to be trying. Guys like Holbrook, Eddings and Culbreath all have crummy attitudes but look almost qualified next to Angel.

          He's the WOAT umpire because 2 HOF-caliber pitchers say so? C'mon, let's pump the brakes here, bros. Instant replay now means something like half of all challenged calls get overturned.
          No, you can't challenge balls and strikes, but you CAN adapt to an umpire's human (read: imperfect) ability to call a precisely 100% correct strike zone as outlined by the digital boxes we see on the TV, which makes everyone an expert when it comes to calling said balls and strikes. Safatthia is 38. He knows this. Nothing to see here, folks. Let's move the mics and cameras back to Fenway and Miller Park for the LCSs.

              But seriously, Bucknor's a real jerk.

              ...

              CB, that is, not Bill.

                    It's outrageous that West, Hernandez, Guccione, Bucknor et al. are EVER assigned to the postseason. Those clowns should have been terminated years ago! I'm unfamiliar with Wolf and Gorman, but they have worst percentages than West! Crazy!

                        the lower the number the better. West is the 16th best of all umpires at not having his calls overturned. Wolf and Gorman were both better than West in that category.

                          Angel Hernandez? I think this video speaks volumes.

                            Joe West is the worst umpire ever. Besides the 19th c. guys who were drunk and taking bribes and stuff, of course.

                            "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”
