I know I’m thinking way ahead, but if the A’s lose out on a playoff slot by 1 game, then Angel Hernandez should lose his job. If they get into the playoffs but lose out on home field by 1 game, then Angel Hernandez should get disciplined in some way, at the very least. Can MLB just fire him now?
I’m fine with umpire mistakes, ’cause that’s going to happen at times. But when you’ve got to check a reply and the replays all clearly show a certain play but the umpire says it didn’t happen that way at all… something’s very wrong.
