Good for him.. JMHO but the umpiring seems to have taken a huge step backward this year. Just awful... :lol: :lol: :lol:

The egos of umpires are amazing. They think the game is about them. Nobody cares about them. We just want them to get it right and they can't even do that.

Is Randy Marsh still umpiring?

I wonder when the Braves are going to give him a ring for playing a huge role in getting them to the 1992 World Series.

Exactly. I can live with an occasional mistake. Instead of acknowledging they miss a call from time to time most of them take the stance this guy did with Price. Put on a big show and don't let the players blow off some steam at an obvious missed call. Definitely about their egos...
