wow, looks like you're right- how'd you find out the crews so early???

who does that leave as WS crew chief- I thought one of them had it for sure!

The World Series Crew Chief will come from one of the four crew chiefs from the division series - either Tschida, Davis, West, or DeMuth. It will not be Tschida since he worked last years World Series. My guess is that it will be DeMuth's year. All six World Series umpires will likely come from those who worked the division series.

Crew Chief: Joe West (WUA President, first WS since 2005)
2. Chuck Merriweather (called good game 3 alds, minority)
3. Paul Emmel (class of '99, deserves the series)
4. Brian Gorman( Gerry Davis's guy, after Jim Joyce and Jerry Layne, he's next Crew Chief)
5. Ed Rapuano ( Joe West's Guy, maybe player's top umpire, minority)
6. Gerry Davis( Demuth got ASG, Tschida ineligible, he deserves a WS

Replace Meriweather with Jeff Nelson....and the rest is very good. Emmel is excellent. Rapuano is great as well.

Laz Diaz made a great bang-bang call when he whacked hunter.

Tim McCarver should be told not to discuss calls because his argument that Diaz was wrong was contradicted by video review time and time again.

Also, Tim McClleland called the smallest zone I have seen in a long time. But very consistent and kept the game at a good pace

Tim McCarver, like Joe Buck, doesn't understand the sport of baseball. Neither of these two morons should be allowed remotely close to a baseball stadium. As well as Phil Cuzzi, for that matter...

Wow. This has been one of the worst umpired post seasons in history. I think you need to take the bonus points away from:

CB Bucknor
Phil Cuzzi
Laz Diaz
Greg Gibson
Jerry Meals
Bill Miller

Better yet, hire Brian Knight, Rob Drake, heck even Dan Bellino.

How much did New York pay these umpires? It seems that every ump who works first base at Yankee Stadium picks up a paycheck from the NYY 1B Coach. $200 million payroll for the team, and another $200 million for the umpires. Disgraceful.

I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree here... I think Bill Miller is just a bad base ump, doesn't matter what teams are involved, he just likes calling everyone out. You know the old addage, we get paid for strikes and outs, not balls and safes.
18th-Oct-2009 04:38 pm (UTC) - Layne
Anonymous
You coud argue it was a bad call, but I was fine with Jerry Layne calling the runner safe at second on the double play attempt. I hate the neighborhood call and would have called this the same exact way.
18th-Oct-2009 07:20 pm (UTC) - Re: Layne

I think the issue was that it's been called one way all season long, and now, during the LCS, they decide to change how it's called. Do that during the pre-season, not during the middle of the post-season. Of course the call is technically correct, backed up by the rule-book. But so too is probable cause when a police officer pulls you over for having an out of state license plate, a minor viewing obstruction, just one license plate (even if you're only issued one plate anyway)... Are these technically valid reasons and possible cites? Yes. Do they make logical sense? Most likely not.

I was pretty disappointed by Jerry Layne's call at second base last night.Sure he never touched the bag but it was a convenient safe call last night by a solid umpire...Laz did a good job behind the plate but not so good of a job at first in game one..

Atrocious umpiring in the post season this year,but then again Atrocious baseball playing by the angels...

Ted Barrett is just having a terrible game behind the plate tonight, mostly going both ways though.

They just showed a graphic of Andre Ethier's at bat that ended as a 3-2 pitch called ball four. Not only should that pitch have been called a strike, but even with that pitch, only two pitches in the at bat were in the strike zone. The count should have been 4-2, meaning the walk should have been called two pitches prior.

Do not pay so much attention to the TV "K Zone"

That does not conclusively describe the strike zone.

To really know the zone, you have to be PU. That is where it is best to determine what is a ball and what is a strike. NOT some computerized box

Bill Miller called an excellent game behind the plate in game 3 of the Yankees-Angels series. Very consistent.

If i had my way, the WS umpires would be this (even though there cannot be any call-ups and the assignements are pulled from the DS):

HP CC Joe West
1B CB Bucknor
2B Bill Hohn
3B James Hoye
LF Todd Tichenor
RF Bruce Froemming (bring him out of retirement)

McClelland said it himself after the game -- he flat out missed it, for whatever odd reason, he didn't see the double play and botched the call. I doubt he was straight-lined, it looked like he had a great angle. Sometimes you just don't see things, I guess.
