then he tried to sue it, but missed something that obvious as well

Even Brett Philips (the runner) was annoyed because he knew he was clearly out and that they were going to have to waste a bunch of time overturning the call via replay.

I don't watch baseball, but there has to be a point where this idiot just gets fired on the spot.

It would've been funny if Phillips, knowing he was clearly out, returned to the dugout right after the call instead of waiting for the replay call, just to show up Hernandez.

/Hernandez probably would've ejected him

Did that actually go to replay and get overturned or no? 

That's pretty bad, at least a half stride away.

Yes it did. Angel is one of the reasons calls at first are reviewable

I just came here to laugh that the Yankees are getting no hit again.  If this trend continues, then they will have zero more hits this season.

Yankees suck!

If most of us screwed up that bad, that often, we'd be shown the door. WTF???

Ftfa...How on earth is Angel Hernandez still employed by Major League Baseball?

Answer...he has a stack of racial discrimination lawsuits ready to be files the moment he is fired. He has already brought up the race card regarding being not named to umpire playoff games in the past.

OH NO! If they lose today they.. will have only lost their 3rd series all year and still have the best record in baseball.

Seniority and time served, by now he's probably insanely difficult to unload.  Should have tossed him early

unfortunately that's not gonna happen with the way the MLB umpires' union is, especially considering how long he's been around.

Does Angel Hernandez even remember what a good call is anymore?

Bucknor's the worst umpire in baseball, but at least he's not a dick about it.

is a meme about someone who's been retired for 6 years the best you've got?

Oh lord. I was in the stands and everyone, even us Rays fans, knew that Phillips was out by a mile

He was behind home plate today and got a large amount of heckling. A lot of it from my uncle

I'll see your CB Bucknor, and raise you Doug Eddings

Bucknor wasn't even the worst umpire this week

That's always going to be funny, along with Jeet's gift baskets.

I was watching the Bucs broadcast of both games and he was turrible. The color guy even mentioned how out of position Hernandez was at first base a few times yesterday.

now that Joe West has retired, maybe Eddings can take his place in the unholy triumvirate of sucky MLB umpires.

As someone that knows little of baseball, does the ball have to be settled in the glove like a football catch?

As soon as the ball touches leather, as long as the ball isn't dropped.

Eh. If the ball bounces off the glove and into the air, where the fielder eventually catches it before it hits the ground, it's not caught at the first moment it touches leather.
