Angel Hernandez just isn’t a good umpire, let’s get that out of the way.
The veteran ump had a rough night at Yankee Stadium on Monday, as he had three (!) calls overturned at first base in the first four innings.
Here they are:
After the game, TBS analyst and MLB Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez slammed Hernandez, who is known as one of the worst umpires in the league.
“Angel was horrible,” Martinez said on TBS’ postgame show. “Don’t get me going on Angel now. Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel. It doesn’t matter how many times he sues Major League Baseball. He’s as bad as there is.”
You know it was a bad night when Peter Gammons is coming after you.
But hey, it gets better, because Hernandez will be the home plate umpire for Tuesday’s Game 4.
