Ever been in a car headed the wrong direction & want to choke the driver for not asking for directs. When they R lost? just happened Vs Tx.— (@DALLASBRADEN209) May 17, 2012
What is Dallas Braden referring to?
A's vs. Rangers, bottom six, 3-3 game. Brandon McCarthy pitching to Elvis Andrus with runners on the corners and one out. Andrus pops up a bunt, and McCarthy dives.
Home-plate umpire Laz Diaz said that the ball hit the ground, and Andrus was given an RBI single. McCarthy immediately argued. Bob Melvin argued and got ejected. Diaz never asked any other umpires for help. This was Diaz's angle, incidentally:
Nothing more to say. Just, there you go. Today in umpires.
