  • Edmonds: Umpire cursed at ME

    According to Jim, after he questioned the called strike on the up in in pitch, Cuzzi said "Don't you fucking come back here questioning me."

    Not sure who to believe. Maybe Cuzzi still had his Hanes Her Way in a bunch after also arguing balls/strikes with TLR, and was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Or maybe Jimmy needed to let off some built up steam.

    But two things immediately come to mind:

    1) Jimmy's been around this game long enough to determine this and has to monitor what he says to avoid being ejected.

    2) Cuzzi (and umps everywhere) absolutely must learn to separate themselves personally from the action (especially in games of this magnitude where emotions sometimes run high) and simply concentrate on being as invisible as possible and call the game.

    A good ump is one you can't recall by name after the game is over.

      Not sure who to believe. Maybe Cuzzi still had his Hanes in a bunch because of the TLR confrontation and was a ticking bomb reignited and ready to re-blow.

      And add that as soon as he started talking to the ump someone should have been flying out of the dugout to stop him from doing just what he did.
      Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.
