Umpires. . .

Wow. I really don't hardly ever complain (well, OK, just a little) about the umpires. I mean I can understand a bad call, when it is a bang-bang play it is a tough call to make. But it's when umpires start making the game about themselves more than the player.

Take for instance last night after a close call on a check swing on Mike Aviles. After a two strike pitch it was ruled that Aviles went around on the pitch. Ok fine. Whatever. Then after Aviles is called out to end the game the homeplate umpire (not the ump that made the call on the check swing) initiates a conversation to Aviles, clearly creating a scene between the two. I don't know how long the two had the conversation (possibly 15-30 seconds), but the key to the point is why?

The game is already over, why does the umpire feel the need to initiate something with a player after the game. Constantly through out the series with Chicago every close call has gone against the Royals, which isn't necessarily uncommon, but since they are the home team it is said they get the calls.

On Tuesday night umpire Bill Hohn misses a call on a clear runner interfernce call, to me it isn't the fact that he missed the call, but after Hillman came out to argue and asked him to conference with other umpires. Hohn refused to conference and that turned to be a very critical part of the game, not the only reason the Royals lost but a definite turning point. Anyway, first pitch tonight at 7:10, Greinke vs. Buehrle.

Later,
