So the ump did nothing wrong, yet the media and some people like to hate umps for no good reason.
It's pretty much accepted that the ump was wrong. Telling a guy you have to earn the right to throw the ball back to the pitcher? Really? Doesn't matter if Martin is a douchebag, it's still petty and unprofessional.
Martin said the only thing that bothered him was he likes to keep his arm loose by thriwing the balls out when men are on base. Otherwise he was pretty laughable about the comical nature of the entire thing. Its pretty silly.
