I believe this is incorrect. Carlson ejected Porter arguing this play in the ninth. Victorino was tossed arguing a check swing from the dugout in the seventh inning by the third base umpire Knight.

Jerry Remy sounds like a stereotypical drunk Bostonian fan who happened to find his way into the broadcasting booth. "I mean... he was just hassvings a convorsaton wid da thoid base umpiower."

Gil Imber said...

Good on Knight. MLB needs more umpires like Brian who don't put up with crap from shitty players.

Gil Imber said...

Remy is very fair when it comes to umpiring. He often complements them. If you have to gripe at this then you clearly have not heard others.

Hitting .292 and shitty??????

Gil Imber said...

RCA he not saying the player numbers are shitty he saying there attitudes are shitty. Look i am a red sox fan and i didn't like the call myself but in the rule book you cannot argue strike calls. Now with foul-tip that was a clear and hard for the home plate umpire to make that call for the fact he didn't see the ball bounce.

Gil Imber said...

Jerry can get that way sometimes, i mean when we look at it didn't seem that bad i still don't agree with jerry. You really don't know any sterotype boston fans shame on you.

Gil Imber said...

He does sometimes and other times he does show a bias side. I am red sox fan but i can admit it.

Gil Imber said...

I understand. It was a stupid ejection.

Gil Imber said...

I wouldn't say it was stupid. I think more of the mlb umpire need to talk more than say no I got that one. But they seriously had to slow the replay down to even see the bounce.

Gil Imber said...

Astros play by play guys are so f'n dumb. They have no idea what they are talking about.

Gil Imber said...

Nobody wonders why Carlson didn't get help on the foul tip???
