Ump tosses Braves fan for profane heckling of Nationals' Harper

Welke took off his mask, pointed to the fan and ejected him from Turner Field in Atlanta during Tuesday night's game between the Washington Nationals and Braves. ''There's no place for that,'' Welke told The Associated Press on Wednesday. ''Forget...

Yankees' Joe Girardi ejected during Tigers game

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been ejected from a game against the Detroit Tigers. Girardi was tossed during a demonstrative argument with third base umpire Tim Welke over a fair-or-foul call in the fifth inning Thursday. He was upset after Detroit's Andy Dirks hit a go-ahead double down the line because Welke put his hands up to indicate it was a foul ball, then...

MLB in no rush to expand replay

Tim Welke blew a call last week. I'm sure you saw it. Jerry Hairston Jr. was called out at first base in Denver, even though Todd Helton's feet were in Wyoming. Many of you screamed (or typed) the same reaction: INSTANT REPLAY! That's reasonable. But if you thought Major League Baseball would respond by rushing to expand instant replay, you were mistaken. Baseball...

15 Greatest White Guy Twitter Reactions To Tim Welke’s Blown Call

Nothing gets white guys fired up like a blown call in a worthless baseball game in May. Sure, Tim Welke had a bad angle in the top of the 6th last night when he called Jerry Hairston out with Todd Helton about two feet off the bag. Looked horrible in real-time and looked even worse on replay. The Rockies eventually won and of course white guys went totally berserk on Twitter. Like...

One of the worst calls you’ll ever see in baseball

The play: Wednesday afternoon, Coors Field, Dodgers vs. Rockies — Dodgers utilityman Jerry Hairston, Jr. hit a ground ball to Rockies third baseman Chris Nelson’s left.  Nelson made a nice diving play, stood up and threw the ball wide to first base.  It was wide enough that Todd Helton, who is a pretty good defensive first baseman, realized he wasn’t going to catch it while...

WAY OFF BASE

Worst call of the MLB season so far?

Umpire Tim Welke blew a call so badly in the Dodgers-Rockies game on Wednesday that it’s almost comical to see how much he missed it. Dodgers infielder Jerry Hairston Jr. grounded a ball to Rockies third baseman Chris Nelson who made a diving stop and threw across the diamond in the top of the 6th. His throw pulled Todd Helton a couple feet off the first base bag, yet Welke...
