Holy shiat is he still on a major-league roster? I thought he was a coach from the headline, and from the fact that he's 45 freaking years old.

I don't watch a ton of MLB anymore, but it seems like the umps are way bigger pussies than they used to be. They'd probably faint from a case of the vapors if Earl Weaver was managing.

That was no fail, that was stirring the drink. The ump was inconsistent; someone in a postion to say so without hurting the team spoke up. Good for him.

Why they still use meatware for precision calls in pro sport is for one dumb reason; miltary-style authority rule.

That was what I thought. Jeez, he's old, but good for him for playing so long. Might as well milk that as long as you can.

Thats nothing. Phils had a player get ejected even though he was on the DL at the time.

He doesn't play very much; the Jays brought him in more as a mentor to their young guys than anything else.

Omar = 1st ballot HOF or there's N-O justice. If he played for a big market team during his peak years, ESPN & their ilk would be slobbering all over him.

Also, if he does get into Cooperstown, my wife's signed Omar Vizquel bat should really go up in value & that's what's really important.

To me..

When he gets into Cooperstown, it won't be because of his bat.

I was lucky enough to see Chris Bosio's no-hitter for the Mariners. Omar Vizquel made a great play for the final out. That play will always be what I think of when someone mentions Omar Vizquel's name.

Yeah, I realize that, but she got his bat for free & he happily signed it. It might've seemed a little greedy to ask for his glove, too?

Also, 2842 career hits ain't shabby.

He's been great at fill ins this year for batting matchups/in field vacancies.

Ah, I loved J-Mac. His bat wasn't the strongest, but he was a defensive wizard.

His home run on father's day is still one of my favourite baseball moments.

I'm not one of those sentimental about baseball types, but that moment made my porch with a tv one of the dustiest outdoor spots in the world.

Ozzie got in, and he had an even worse bat.

If you saw it and weren't moved, even just a little bit, you'd have to be a robot.

I remember ESPN's Rob Neyer was rating the game's best short stops and failed to include Vizquel, and so i wrote Neyer to complain... He actually emailed me back and said Vizquel was too old.... (and that was 12 years ago).

He's there because the Blue Jays middle infield is awful. They willingly took on Luis Valbuena in the off-season from the Indians, and Valbuena was the guy he had to beat out for the job if I'm not mistaken.
