Bad calls

October 24, 2009

Major League Baseball should be ashamed of the incompetent performance of Ted Barrett, the umpire behind the plate in Game 4 of the NLCS. Barrett had two different strike zones, one for the Phillies and one for the Dodgers. It's difficult enough to beat the Phillies, but when the home plate umpire rules against you it makes the game even tougher.

Don't you think it's about time MLB upgraded its umpiring crews from beer league to Little League for the playoffs?
