Wanker of the Day

>> Wednesday, June 02, 2010



Jim Joyce. What a disgrace; as far as I'm concerned, in that context a firable offense. It's much worse than Denkinger, not only because it wasn't even that close but because that blown call left the Cardinals in a position to win. Joyce's incompetence robbed Gallaraga of history, although at least he'll always be remembered as having pitched a de facto perfect game.

If he were actually a good and competent umpire, I might actually feel a bit sorry for him, but he's been one of the worst umpires around for years now; a symbol of the utter lack of accountability in the world of MLB umpiring. I'd like to think that this sort of thing, along with the tomfoolery of Angel Hernandez last year, might lead to some actual accountability and quality control, but I'm not optimistic.

Well, three perfect games in a month, it would become mundane.

Seriously, any job, there are points where you can't f-up. He f-ed up. "Wanker" is too generous.

My rage is still too intense to comment coherently on this.
