That was possibly the worst example of field umpiring in playoff history. He had three calls overturned at first base in the first four innings of the Red Sox/Yankees ALDS game, and two of them were not even close. He had another overturned at second in the previous game.

It gets better, because Hernandez will be the home plate umpire for Tuesday’s Game 4.

And this is why Angel fought for us shitt.....er, minority umpires to get more playoff assignments! So we can show off our stuff on a national level!

Way to make The Blue proud, AH! The haters can just get themselves tossed!

ughhh. NOT good news. He was, at least, lousy in his calls for both teams last night.

He is an absolutely terrible ump. On top of that, he has a thin skin and a quick ejection trigger. He cannot take dissent of any kind and seems to enjoy being the center of attention. I groan every time I see that he's working behind the plate. Geez, didn't I do enough groaning over the game itself LAST night?


As the old saying goes, the best umps are the ones you DON'T notice.

He loved to sign for the autograph hounds outside Busch Stadium back in the day when he was just a terrible NL umpire... probably out of a sense of hubris. He and Eric Gregg (Who was a questionable umpire himself, though a much better person than Mr. Hernandez) are the only two umps I ever got a signature from...
