Hernandez, CB Buckner and "Cowboy" Joe West, all should have been out of a job a long time ago.

SO My Angel Hernandez Story:

He had worked an especially egregious game behind the plate one night. Probably 2007 or 2008. The next night he was at 3rd base and I was in my brother in Law's seats down 3rd base line just 3 rows from field.....i.e. well within EARSHOT.

Well I was giving it to Angel from the get go. I was still pissed about his crappy strikezone from the night before. As luck would have it there were two plays at 3rd in the first couple innings, neither of which went our way. Also a called check swing that went against us on a left hand batter.

Needless to say, I was in rare form. No profanity mind you....it's a family venue. :twisted:

But within what I perceived as acceptable boundaries, I was going after him HARD, LOUD, AND CONSTANT. I had noticed a woman sitting with two teenage girls on the other side of the aisle giving me the stink eye a couple of times, and thought......'Chase Field Fans....don't even like it when you are loud ragging on the umpire"


Around the 4th or 5th inning I got up to take a leak, and when I came back Jim McLennan from AZ Snakepit who was at the game with me told me that woman had asked him while I was gone if he could get me to cool it, as I was RUINING THE GAME FOR ANGEL'S DAUGHTERS !! :oops: :oops:

Of course I did chill out.......how could I know his kids would be there ??.

I had a temporary moment of remorse and regret that I would make his kids feel so bad....but I have to admit the very next time Angel was behind the plate he pissed me off so bad, any feelings of remorse or embarrassment had left me for good.

He is BAD at his job. Simple as that.

The article reports that the lawsuit includes the following: "The selection of these less qualified, white individuals over Hernandez was motivated by racial, national origin and/or ethnic considerations."

Huh. "Less qualified." As in, maybe the selections were not made on the basis of race, national origin, or other ethnic considerations, but rather on the basis of who could actually do a competent job?

I am at a loss of words on this one... It is cases/claims like this that give real discrimination claims/cases a bad name.

Exactly, like false DV complaints.

So he's pulling the race card to cover up the fact that he's lousy at his job? Wow.

Ian Kinsler ejected by Hernandez after calling a ball. If Kinsler gets fined I think every player in MLB will offer to pay it.

Tossed just for glancing at Hernandez? This awful excuse for an umpire has to go.

Any way of knowing when he is scheduled to appear again at the Ballpark Formerly Known as BoB?

Wouldn't it be great to show up with signs telling poor Angel what the fans think of him?

Done tastefully, of course; no profanity or anything. Maybe for Joe West, too...
