Umpire looks stupid.

The topic of baseball games taking to long has been a controversy for years. What I dont get is why. If im going to pay 50 dollars to go see my favorite team play I really dont care how long the game is. The more time I get to spend seeing my favorite players the better. When Umpire Joe West was asked his opinion after Tuesdays Red Sox vs Yankees game  this is what he had to say:

“They’re the two clubs that don’t try to pick up the pace,” said West, the chief of the umpiring crew working the three-game series, according to the report. “They’re two of the best teams in baseball. Why are they playing the slowest?

“It’s pathetic and embarrassing. They take too long to play,” he said,

Ok last time I checked Mr West you are an Umpire, your job is to call balls and strikes and to enforce the rules of the game. Your job is not to call the two best teams in the game pathetic and embarrassing. Why does anyone care what this ass thinks in the first  place. I’m guessing they are paid by the game and not by the hour or his opinion would be vastly different..  So the fact that this idiot thinks the games are to long are one thing but the fact that he opened his mouth and called them pathetic is another. How will we ever be able to believe that he will be a fair and impartial  judge  of the game again? I for one am calling out for the obvious Platter vs Head sinerio. Fire JoeWest!
