Nice that Eck would call umpires after games and they'd talk to him. Too bad he wouldn't give Price the same courtesy.

That was a better opitch pitch and it's a ball. Screw this guy
No one is arguing that the ump is consistent. Or even good.

However, we are saying that it’s stupid to blame Cora for Holt being a selfish asshole and getting tossed from the game over a perfect pitch at the knees.

I thought he was pissed about strike 2, which was 6 inches off the plate. But I’m watching at a bar without sound, so what do I know?

Rayburn with the make up call on the attempt to call time out. Suck it Gleybar.

As another poster noted, he barked about the third pitch being low. (His comments were picked up clearly by the field mic.)

Pitch 3 was a perfect pitch at the knees? Wow. You could see Holt was pissed right away. Core waited too long. I was yelling at him to get out there. He's overdue to get tossed because of an inconsistent home plate ump. Shoe some freakin passion FFS. This year's team is dead emotionally most of the time.

I mean you’re right but with the ump being so inconsistent let’s not kill holt too much here. Guys are just annoyed.
I’m not killing him for being annoyed. I’m killing him for indulging his ego and getting tossed. And I’m pushing back strongly against the idea that Cora could have protected him.

YES bitching nonstop about the strike zone. Is there a bigger group of whiners among baseball announcers?
