Miguel Cabrera, Brad Ausmus ejected in ridiculous scene in Cleveland

During Wednesday’s Tigers-Indians game, two-time reigning AL MVP Miguel Cabrera and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus were both ejected by home plate umpire Tim Timmons in the sixth inning. The ejections were spurred by Timmons not asking first base umpire Tim Welke for an opinion on a check-swing by Cabrera, causing the Tigers first baseman to get just a little irritated. All Timmons...

Yasiel Puig called out by umpire Tim Welke after leaning toward second

Yasiel Puig has already made some boneheaded decisions on the base paths during his young career. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder was benched by Don Mattingly last season after he chose not to slide into second. Bad baserunning is also one of the reasons Mattingly was reportedly frustrated with Puig during spring training. But on […]

Analyzing the Umpires: NLDS Edition

It is time to look at the third team on the field for the National League division round, the umpires. Each umpire is given a quick look to see if they have an unique strike calling patters. Also, I posted their 2013 K/9 and BB/9 rates which I scaled them to the league average strikeout and walk rates. A 100 value is league average and a 110 value would be a value 10% higher than...

White Sox and Yankees play half-inning with 3 umps

The game between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees has started with only three umpires while Bruce Dreckman was treated for a finger injury. The teams played a half-inning with three umps. Dreckman came onto the field for the bottom of the first, umpiring at third base. He appeared to have a bandage on his left hand and was keeping it elevated whenever possible. Dreckman...

Ever Wish the Umpires Would Just Go Away?

(Image: Saintsbaseball.com) Most baseball fans endure more than a few moments during the season when they wish the umpires on the diamond would be forced to walk the plank.  Well, not literally, of course, because walking the plank was a brutal form of homicide.  But sometimes it’s nice to imagine baseball without the human errors that are inevitably part of the old game...

Eric Chavez Es En Fuego

Eric Chavez es en fuego.  Rough translation: The guy is on fire! Chavez went 9-16 in the Yankees split of the four game series in Detroit. His biggest hit came yesterday, breaking a 3-3 tie in a game that third base umpire Tim Welke almost ruined because he was "too quick."But forget about Welke. Since Alex Rodriguez went down, Chavez has really stepped it up, getting...

Mark Teixeira and Eric Chavez homered off Detroit Tigers reliever Joaquin Benoit on consecutive eighth-inning pitches, propelling the New York Yankees to a 4-3 victory at Comerica Park Thursday. The Yankees, who won their second straight after dropping the first two games of the series...

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.

Three umpires get in separate arguments at once during Brewers-Nationals game (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Umpires argue with managers and players all the time. It happens every day in the majors, but very rarely do we see an instance where multiple umpires are engaged in entirely separate arguments simultaneously. On Sunday, three of the guys in blue found themselves arguing separate calls at the same time. With the bases loaded and the Brewers...

Three umps in arguments at same time

A play in the sixth inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' game against the Washington Nationals on Sunday resulted in three of the four umpires involved in separate arguments at the same time. The Brewers led, 3-2, and had the bases loaded with one out when Norichika Aoki laid down a squeeze bunt that was fielded by Washington starter Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez made a quick, off-target...

Instant Replay in Major League Baseball

If you need one reason and one reason only for Major League Baseball to increase their use of instant replay, look no further than the photo above. The umpire pictured in the photo, Tim Welke, called the runner out. Welke was blocked by Colorado Rockies 1B Todd Helton when making the call, but as long as you know that Helton’s leg isn’t 6′ long, you know that Helton is off...

Game 2012.49: Tigers at Red Sox

23-25, third place, 4 games behind Cle. A missed strike three on a foul tip that was caught cleanly, but ruled to have hit the dirt first, gave the Red Sox an extra strike and 3 extra runs in the 2nd inning yesterday, and though Doug Fister will never admit it, you can’t help but wonder how different the game could have been. The margin of victory was, after all, 3 runs. I can’t...

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.
