Angel Hernandez


Angel Hernandez

If you are a player or a Manager who is bad at what you do , you get benched ,demoted or fired. When it comes to umpires , there is no reprecussions. I'm not advocating for robot umpires or auto strike zones but how about holding them up to the same standards as the rest , this is the majors after all.

Re: Angel Hernandez

Have to agree 100% - However the Union protects him from being vilified for his obvious lack of ability, it's kind of like a tenured Professor they are almost impossible to remove even when it's warranted

Re: Re: Angel Hernandez

All the other major sports rate their officials on a game by game basis and how they perform determines what assignments they get or whether they get fined or demoted. Baseball is the only one that doesn't.

Re: Angel Hernandez

If I was a manager, I would play the game under protest every time Angel Hernandez is the home plate umpire. 😆 Not a real option but fun to think what if everybody just said nope not today.

Re: Re: Angel Hernandez

Does he favor one team or is he equally bad for both sides? Because if that's the case, man up, play the game, and quit your b----ing.

Re: Angel Hernandez

he is equally bad for both sides. its not one sided, but if he was a surgeon would he be allowed to kill people indiscriminately?

he is either competent or incompetent, and should be judged accordingly, honestly, he isn't fit to judge a pie eating contest
