Well, that didn’t last long. John Roberts put in a good word for umpires at the start of his confirmation hearings. Now last night an umpire returns to his more typical role as arrogant regulator, gives the White Sox an extra out, and the Angels go down to bitter defeat. Given that the umpire in question initially gave an out sign on the swinging third strike, only to reverse himself for reasons best known to his hypnotist, people will be comparing his cynical, incompetent performance to that of the basketball officials who gave the USSR three chances to defeat the U.S. in the 1972 Olympics. I don’t think we’ve heard the end of this.
