    LaTroy said ump wanted Cubs to win

    LaTroy takes out his frustrations on not being able to find the strike zone on the home plate ump.

    Astros reliever LaTroy Hawkins claims umpire "wanted" Cubs to win | Hardball

    Need a mod (or whoever) to change that to "sez"

    Hell, that was right before he got traded, if I remember right. Cubs got Jerome Williams and Scott Eyre in return. LaTroy got heckled by me at SBC Park later that year when the Cubs were in town.

    Only LaTroy could have pulled something like that off. Of all the things to hit, he hit's Offermans head.

    Re: LaTroy said ump wanted Cubs to win

    What an idiot. I saw the pitch he got thrown out after and it wasn't a strike. He must have said a magical word because the ump didn't hesistate to toss him after he said what he did. If anything I wanted him to stay in the game so someone could of hit a homer out sooner to end the game...


    Go Cubs Go!

    The Cubs get all the calls Sunday the Reds were raped




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: LaTroy said ump wanted Cubs to win

    LaTroy was complaining because Lee (in the previous at bat) walked on, i think 4 pitches, then he was 2-1 or 2-0 to Ramirez. The ump took his mask off and stepped out from behind the plate and made a "stop it" type motion to LaTroy. At that time LaTroy kind of flicked his wrist as if he was telling the Ump to shut it, or dismissing him.

    That is why he got ejected.

    If LaTroy thinks the ump didn't like him last night, wait until he hears about this.
