Umpires complain of verbal abuse by Angels
This makes me laugh. The Umpires have a tough job and they make mistakes. When they make mistakes the coaches let them have it. Its about defending their team and firing them up when the Umps screw up. Apparently in this circumstance something Mike Scioscia said hurt one of the Umps feelings. Cry me a river pal, It’s baseball and if you can’t take a little verbal abuse from the Managers when you screw up than you shouldn’t be an umpire. If umps start using the commissioners office as a verbal abuse hot-line every time a manager yells at them than whats next, mediators that come out when a Manager lets an up have it? Plate umpire Rick Reed needs to thicken his skin a little if he wants to be an umpire. Truth be told there is no crying in baseball.
