F*ck off and retire Joe.

Country Joe can eat shiat.

If I were a player of color, I'd have a lot of trouble believing Joe West would make calls fairly for me after this.

/granted, I'd have felt the same way before this, too.

Hunter Wendelstedt. His dad was an umpire so he's a legacy. Got his job not by merit but nepotism.

So, when is he going on a ventilator for the hoax?

/and doesn't he have BINGO for preexisting conditions?

One of the least shocking political reveals of all time.
 
2020-09-07 9:24:35 AM  
Isn't it weird how every person who was already totally unliked before ends up being a Trump supporter?
 
2020-09-07 9:30:07 AM  
trump would still find a way to get booed in an empty stadium

And a snowflake at that.

you know how a Dothraki wedding without at least three deaths is considered a dull affair? for Joe West, a dull affair is a game without at least three ejections.

I wonder if any MAGAts will tell him to keep his politics out of sports, shut up, and umpire. wait, no I don't.

Angel Hernandez is already suing claiming racism as the reason he doesn't get the "good" umpiring assignments, rather than his total incompetence, and Joe West gets the good assignments because he has maximum seniority despite his total incompetence. Both of them need to Go Away and retire to Florida so they can heckle the good umps during Marlins games (and get ejected for it).

I'm having trouble deciding if your statement might be 2 or 4 words too long... or if the first 7 words are needed.  Maybe just "I'd have a lot of trouble believing Joe West?"
 
2020-09-07 11:16:35 AM  
Way to work in a political endorsement Joe. I'll bet there are rules against that.
 
2020-09-07 11:19:33 AM  
They don't even make batters wear a mask which is a little surprising. I wonder if the GM was really tossed for yelling something, since with the stadiums empty its easy to spot someone yelling.

Tim Anderson pretty much agrees with all of this.

Is there one prominent/famous Trumper who wasn't a known piece of shiat before revealing their Trumpiness? I can't think of one.

Joe West is the epitome of "We aren't here to watch the refs."

Fangraphs should get on that. What's his strike zone look like for black pitchers? Black hitters? We have the tech/data for that kind of thing now.

Pretty much every non-celebrity (sorry Joe) who thinks that letting everyone know who they're voting for will help that candidate . . . is wrong.  "Oh great, so that's the candidate of the person who can't shut up about politics!  Maybe I should consider that candidate more seriously" pretty much never happens.

The guy who gets it wrong as much as he does and then makes the outcome of baseball games all about him wants you to think he's right about this.  It doesn't matter what Joe West says about anything, he's a sh*tbird who sucks at what he's supposed to be good at..

Angel Hernandez ejected Steve McMichael from a game when he was in the TV booth because he said something after singing the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley.

That said, he trolled Trump later so maybe it was an act all along.

Yeah.  I found an instance of him making a Warren joke, and people predictably screaming "Lowe wears the MAGA hat!!!"  If thinking that Warren's Native American episode is funny makes someone a Trumper . . . lotsa Democrats in that crowd.

And yeah, found him making fun of Trump.  And noting that if he didn't make a Trump joke, he'd get kicked out of Hollywood which, again, obvious

Remember this as Robert Kraft votes for Trump again.

the1hatman: Nana's Vibrator: 'I've been a disgrace for decades.  What can I say to sink even lower?'

Remember this as Robert Kraft votes for Trump again.


Quote:
"This kneeling," Kraft reportedly said, addressing what he called an "elephant in the room."
"The problem we have is, we have a president who will use that as fodder to do his mission that I don't feel is in the best interests of America," Kraft reportedly continued. "It's divisive and it's horrible
."

A later quote:

"I am proud to be associated with so many players who make such tremendous contributions in positively impacting our communities. Their efforts, both on and off the field, help bring people together and make our community stronger. There is no greater unifier in this country than sports and, unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal. Our players are intelligent, thoughtful and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful"

This is a guy who sent his own private jet to pick up PPE from China where they had all materials escorted in Patriots trucks by Mass State Police - at the potential of an armed encounter with the federal government - to various states at the request of their governors to make sure Trump didn't seize it and mark it up and resell it.

These are not the quotes and acts of a man who will vote for Donald Trump.

I know what you want to be true.

/you should also take a look at the spa incident.

It just bounced of his fat, probably didn't even feel it.
