Solid crew all the way around.

McClelland, Hal Gibson, Hudson, and Foster are in Los Angeles tonight, but they just were in Arizona for the LA-ARI series. So they are having the Dodgers two series in a row or will they switch tomorrow.

Gil Imber said...

Mike Matheny should be suspended for 5 games for his yelling at Bellino after the final out of the Cubs game. He waited until the final out then charged at Bellino and started yelling at him, and had to be restrain by Bell and DiMuro. Matheny is a loser in my book after his reaction to the Fagan-Molina situation and tonight.

Gil Imber said...

Not in the box score, but Bellino dumped Matheny after the game tonight. Saw Bellino eject him, and Matheny just continues his unprofessional stance towards umpires.

Gil Imber said...

Saw this. MM was not upset about the catch/no catch call. He was upset with how DB handled a strikeout.

Gil Imber said...

The call was correct -- the pitch was a strike. After Adams questioned him, he took off his mask and appeared to give him the ol' Joe West half-assed shooing maneuver. Nothing wrong here, in my book. Matheny's a clown.

Gil Imber said...

I think they'll switch tomorrow. I assume it was a flight or travel problem getting a crew down to LA and since they were already in the area, might as well right... LA and Arizona was a three game series, so Dodgers didn't have Marty Foster behind the plate until tonight, so there shouldn't be any cross-over.

I'd be shocked if McClelland's crew was still in LA tomorrow.

Gil Imber said...

I know what you're all thinking about Rob Drake working left field. At least the ASG isn't in Atlanta.

Gil Imber said...

Huh? You mean Sam Holbrook I'm assuming for the ifr call?
