I know every team is convinced the umps are out to get them and I dont wanna sound conspiratorial here but I saw a stat that the vast majority of appeals have gone against the braves. I dont know if that proves anything but its fishy.
Like if they did it how rugby or NHL where someone away from the field immediately begins review that'd speed things up and hopefully get things right more often.
I guess what I'm saying is I'm a little league ump. If I was as consistently wrong as the MLB umps and never had admitted when I got stuff wrong I'd be fired. Oh and if once I had the demeanor of a pro ump that immediately escalates any discussion with a manager I'd never be able to work again.
It's just so frustrating.
as ethanm pointed out the braves have a shitty replay guy. this statement
is just basic fandom stupidity. They are right 99.9% of the time for non "balls and strikes" calls and even when they are challenged it is still pretty much a 50/50 propositionIf I was as consistently wrong as the MLB umps and never had admitted when I got stuff wrong I'd be fired.
