Bonehead of the Week: Angel Hernandez

Posted by Jonathan @ RGB Cards | Posted in

This week's Bonehead of the Week? Angel Hernandez. Because he cost the Reds that Sunday night game against the Tigers.

He had a bug up his ass about Ryan Ludwick and called two balls as strikes, including one that was egregious.

He called Devin Mesoraco out on a bogus interference call and sent the baserunner back to first base. Never mind that second was stolen no matter how good Gerald Laird's throw was.

In the spirit of impartiality, he even screwed the Tigers over on a fan interference call.

He sucks. He is the worst umpire in baseball, and that's saying something, because Joe West is apparently still alive.

We should just re-name the award the Angel Hernandez Bonehead of the Week. Or just the Angel Hernandez of the Week.

It's a boy!

The picture you see above you is a baby in a bassinet, watching a Reds game on TV. The batter is Ryan Ludwick. The baby is my son, born on Tuesday. He is the first child for me and my wife. By luck or a twist of fate, the Reds just happened to be on the air on Thursday here in Australia. It was my son's first game.

Even though the Reds lost to the Pirates, and even though he had no idea what was going on (and probably couldn't even see the TV due to newborn eyesight being approximately 20/400), I was able to do something I had been dreaming about for many, many a Reds game with my son. May it be the first of many. :)
