    I was surprised to see that he hasn’t umped a game since May 9th…so it looks like he was maybe being pushed out and given the option to “retire.” Maybe MLB finally said “listen, you suck, you gotta go, here’s what we’ll give you, and if you don’t want it we’ll gladly pay the legal fees to fight the union, because you are that bad.”

    Oh, they already said that. Officially. In order to defend themselves in the lawsuit, which MLB won, they had to prove it wasn't racial bias that kept them from promoting him or letting him umpire World Series games. It was just that he sucked. So, they had to back that up in court, and they did.

    I can't imagine having the gall to claim that you aren't being promoted because of you race when a third of the league is Latino

    What an embarrassing way to lose a lawsuit. Like when Screech tried to sue that guy for making the “International Sex Symbol Dustin Diamond” website—- the accused had to prove it was done in humour, and then end result was (and I’m paraphrasing here) “Yes, this man seems unfuckable. Lawsuit dismissed.”

    He’s as Hispanic as Liz Warren is a Cherokee. He looks like he models suits for Montgomery Ward.

    This is kind of amazing:

    Tim Lincecum has 2 Cy Young Awards and 3 World Series Rings. He was crazy good during a few years. He retired 7 years ago.

    Max Scherzer is the same age and is joining the Rangers rotation after his most recent rehab start.

    Grant Holmes was drafted by the LA Dodgers and has spent the past 10 years bouncing around the minor leagues. The Braves called him up for his MLB debut today, and he came in the game as a relief pitcher. He struck out the first batter he faced, then got ground out, pop out. His Dad was in the stands. Awesome.
