I still dont see anything unprofessional, you dont say what is unprofessional and why, and the way I see it theres no issue here.
If you wanna see unprofessional umpiring, watch the Yankees @ Tigers.
Villareal is pitching and with runner(s) on base, he never comes to a complete halt, so clearly trying to deceive the runner(s).
It's a quick pitch which is a balk. Yet no umpire calls it. And I rarely see that called.
And thats unprofessional.
I think that has more to do with incompetence than retribution. Neither are admirable though, obviously.

Yup, real deal, it seems. Too bad he won't have any run support, but he's a pretty good guy to have added as a freebie.
