    That's pathetic. The role of officials in sports is to keep the game in order and under control. If he can't keep himself under control, he cannot fulfill his responsibility of being an official.

    That ump looks like he's 5'5.

    Before opening the link, I was praying it wasn't Eric Cooper but in the back of my mind I knew it probably was.


    It was.

    He's from Iowa right? While not really professional, how else does an umpire get a point across without throwing someone out. My question is what happened earlier.

    Re: Catcher Restrains Umpire from Charging the Mound

    I was watching that game when it happened. I believe the manager had already been out twice that game to argue calls, including one on the previous batter. Burnett was frustrated with the calls for most of the game. Technically you're not allowed to argue balls and strikes. I think it was more of a "If you keep arguing I'm going to toss your ***" warning as opposed to "charging the mound". Watching the game I didn't think much of it.

    Also, saying that the catcher "restrained him" is a bit of a stretch. Makes it seem like he bull rushed the pitcher.

    Watched the game and what happened is that Cooper was not being consistent with his calls. What he called a strike previously was somehow a ball a couple batters later and vise versa. Burnett was just showing he anger over the inconsistent calls and that is the outcome shown in the video.

    Charging the mound? Misleading headline is misleading

    Umm, headline and commentator completely wrong. There was no charging at the pitcher.

    Correct. "Ump's Eye View" with him and fellow Iowan Tim McClelland on Thursday nights.

    So, who wants to call in when Ump's Eye View is back on the air and call him out for it?

    Baseball umpires are all a joke. Bring in instant replay and robots.

    What happened earlier in the inning was another bad call where the batter swung on 3rd strike even though the ball dived on him and hit his foot. Should have been out. Blue called the ball in the dirt which is a 3rd strike drop and the batter scampered to first, and ultimately second while they argued. Then here a few pitches later, again on strike three the pitch catches the corner and the pitcher is understandably ******. After this the rest of the game was boring.


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
