Angel Hernandez is an Embarrassment to Baseball
Angel Hernandez is the worst umpire in Major League Baseball. It’s hard to know why he has a job in baseball. I’m sure it’s something due with the union, but it’s disappointing that we have to watch Hernandez be a home plate umpire. He was poor for the entire night. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s beat writer Tom Haudricourt killed Hernandez all game long, and things got very out of hand at the end. In the ninth inning, Corey Knenbel nearly ended ejected, and if not for Craig Counsell sprinting out of the dugout, the Brewers would have been out of a closer.

The underrated part of this could have been Bill ‘Rock’ Schroder going off on Hernandez. Like he had that brewing up for a long time, and Rock finally went off with such great passion. BA and Rock have a couple of these moments every season where they stop being analysts and move into fandom. I dig that about them. Good for both of them for not being fucking talking heads.
After Joe West and Hernandez, Brewers deserve the best umpires over the weekend.
