Worst umpire in the bigs

Postby ilsa » Tue Jul 27, 2004 11:48 pm

Who in your opinion consistantly misses the most calls in the big leagues today? Was just wondering if it's just my bias or if anyone else thinks the same.


For me, although Hollowell has been pretty bad on occasion, it seems like every time I watch a game w/ Angel Hernandez he botches something up.

Tim Cheeta (His last name is too hard to spell, but it sounds like Cheeta....) I'll never forget that ALCS game where he called Jose Offerman (Red Sox) on a place Knoblok (also weird spelling...) DIDNT make in which he missed the tag but Tim Cheeta called him out.

You do realize you've just given the Yankee fans on this board more ammo right?

"Typical Red Sox fan, still complaining about the past" or something to that effect is right around the corner.

When you've been around here as long as I have (which isn't as long as others but still pretty long), you can spot these things from a mile away :-)

Just a heads up from one Sox fan to another ;-)

When you watch as many games as I have over the years then yeah a few of the bad ones stick in your head ;-D


IMO Angel Hernandez is the worst ump out there. His strike zone is awful and is the most inconsistant I've seen.

I think it's "Tschida" and "Knoblauch".

And I dson't know which umpires make bad calls, I don't pay attention to who they are.

As for referee's in hockey, Kerry Fraser is horrible. He owes the Flames another chance at the cup.

Haven't watched as much hockey the past couple years as in the past but I concur from the many times he's f***ed the Sabres. I'm sure he's still skating around sans helmet. Every time I saw him, I hoped that channeling all the hatred I could possibly muster would cause a fatal slap shot to strike that brainless, vision impaired, piece of dung that rests upon his shoulders. Not exaggerating, I truly would like to see the man die.
