MLB umpires are getting out of hand and the league is doing little about it. Last night's game between the Cubs and Cardinals was yet another example of an umpire trying to make himself bigger than the game. After getting called out on strikes last night, Matt Adams questioned the call on his way back to the dugout.  It was a mild and low-key protest, but apparently, this did not sit well with umpire Dan Bellino, who took off his mask and shoo'd Adams away.
