On Friday, with the bases loaded and the Suck Sux down one to the 27-time World Champion Greatest Franchise in the History of Organized American Sports,David Ortiz took a 3-1 pitch (that was actually a strike) and then he went absolutely batshit because he thought it was a ball.
The ump didn't throw him out of the game.
But the next pitch may have been a ball...
...and the ump punched out the big PED cheat who was never called on it.
The Suck Sux manager went nuts and got tossed.
Ortiz came running back out and finally got tossed.
The Yankees won.
Theeeee Yankeeeeeeeessssss won!
Which was nice.
On Monday night Bryce Harper got punched out and he thought it was a ball.
He got tossed.
Then he gave the ump a "F&*% You!"
Listen, I'm not arguing that the umps don't deserve some angst...Billy Martin and Early Weaver and Sweet Lou Pinella were entertaining when they dressed down the umps.
But there is a whole lot of complaining....
...after every sporting event...
...on social media.
I checked in on the Suck Sux sites after Ortiz was run.
Man, the fans were screaming.
Of course, there are a lot of screaming fans in every city in every football town and the refs are lousy there...
...so what is the answer?
I don't know.
I just loved seeing Ortiz jump up and down!
