Bochy on a rampage

August 12, 2009

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants – Box Score – August 12, 2009 – ESPN

Gary Darling ejected him this time. Apparently we’ve had bad calls and a reversal. More later.

UPDATE: It appears that the game was a badly umpired affair all around — but that Bochy was wrong and Darling right on the call at first leading to the ejection. On the other hand, Pablo Sandoval was apparently hit by a pitch — I have a long rant on HBP saved up, though I don’t know when I’ll be able to write it — but the umpire ruled that he fouled it off his bat. Nonetheless, there was a bases-clearing brawl milling about after the pitch. And then in the top of the ninth, Darling pulled a rare two-fer, ejecting the Giants’ acting manager Ron Wotus, leaving the team in the hands of the third-base coach. Wotus was arguing a safe call at first on a Rafael Furcal grounder; Furcal probably should have been called out (it was very close, but I thought the throw beat him) and later came around to score the tying run.

    Did you see how this umpiring crew, after a horribly called series in SF, went across the bay and made more horrible calls in Oakland, including two bad calls on the same player in the same inning Sunday. After the second one they tossed Bob Geren (you know it’s a bad call if you manage to upset Bob “Xanax” Geren). This crew has now worn out its welcome for the entire Bay Area.
