I’m a firm believer that umpires are underappreciated. Compared to players, their salaries are small, and they have to deal with a people complaining all the time. So I didn’t take a lot of joy in the fact John Hershbeck got nailed in the nuts with an A.J. Pierzynski foul ball last night.
Ah, who am I kidding? I’ve been watching it for 15 minutes straight. That’s just pure comedy right there.
