Worst Call of the Year
Jesus this is just the kind of call that will lead to instant replay. Doesn’t matter, it’s just fun to see a grown man lie in front of children.
Found on ology.com.
Any questionable catch, a good umpire points at the glove and asks to see the ball. He assumed it was in the glove, now he looks like an asshole.
I fucking hate the Yankoffs, but I don't think the guy did anything wrong. This is on the umpire's head, not the player. It's part of the game.
Wise didn't even pretend to have the ball. How can an ump not even look in his glove? What an incompetent ass.
last week, after "out" call Ump asked me if I had the bag (between innings) I told him "I don't think so, you owe them a make-up call"...
Also, every kid in little league is taught if you dive for a ball and you don't make the catch, tumble over and come up celebrating. If the umpire is good, he'll catch it.
If you lose a game on one play like this, you don't deserve to win. And yes, I thought the same way when Bartman fucked everything up in 2003.
Im sure drunken old men and angry sport affiliated boys will be talking about this for years in bars all over NYC and Cleveland. OH the excitement.
@Rorschach7 i see what you did there, OH.. abbreviation for ohio. you're almost witty enough to own a food truck!
Useless Umpire, they will be replace with robots one day. Cheating Yankees should be thrown out of baseball for this.
Fielder should have did the "right" thing and confessed that someone put it in his glove....with it all caught on tape the umpire looks like a real dick face now! Haha
I'm sorry what did you say? Baseball is too pure of a sport for replay, oh ya it's the human factore that makes it a real game - Bullshit, Bullshit, Bullshit...

@pipeloader Problem is, he didn't come up with the ball. The only person to come up with the ball was "Red Zeppelin" down at the end of the row.
lol, umpire sherlock holmes couldn't figure out when he didn't get the ball handed to him that he never caught it? jesus.
Fuck the yankees. If this was a pennant chase you'd see that ass monkey on the Today Show tomorrow. Eat shit cheaters
They are a bunch of cheaters. They use steroids and HGH and eveything goes their way. I hate them and their fuck head (sorry Hicks) douche bag fans.
Hannahan getting tossed was horseshit. If you look closely, he just protests and never gets abusive or explicit, yet the cock umpire runs him just because he was in his face....walk away blue.
The guy in the red shirt was holding a ball the whole time. You can see him holding it up before it ever got there, Cleveland sucks!
