  • Umpires For WS Announced..

    I'll be taking $5 bets if anyone wants to say there will no controversy surrounding Angel Hernandez at any point during the series.

    QUOTE
    CHICAGO (AP) -- Joe West was picked Thursday as the umpire crew chief for the World Series, culminating a comeback year in which he also worked behind the plate in the All-Star game and during the AL division series.

    West, who also worked the Series in 1993 and 1997, will be behind the plate for Saturday's opener between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros. West was among the 22 umpires who lost their jobs in September 1999 when a mass resignation backfired. He was rehired in February 2002.

    Two other members of the crew have previous Series experience. Derryl Cousins was picked in 1988 and 1999, and Angel Hernandez in 2002. Jeff Nelson, Jerry Layne and Gary Cederstrom will be working their first Series.

    Nelson will be at first base Saturday, with Layne at second, Cousin at third, Cederstrom in left and Hernandez in right.[/b][/quote]

      Was West one of the umps for the Yankees/Angels series?

      I know Hernandez was our NLDS ump.

            guess since all the series in the playoffs had some screwed up call, MLB wants to make sure that something in the WS will be screwed up too

              This news almost makes me glad the Cardinals didn't make the Series. Not really, but I really don't need added stress waiting for Angel to fuck something up that goes against the Redbirds.

              It will be added entertainment watching it this way.
              Of course you do.

                          That's what I keep trying to figure out. Furthermore, why did he ump in the LDS, but then NOT in the LCS, but now again in the WS. If these jobs are awrded based on merit, why is he good enough to be awarded a WS job, but not a LCS job?

                          I really think that by the time the post season comes around, so many of these guys are burnt out, (specifically referring to the good umps) that they turn down the opportunity to do post season games and guys like Angel, who want the attention, earn the job by default. It's the only explanation.
                          Of course you do.
