You Should Have Kept Your Helmet
An ugly situation all around...
I wrote something previously at FanIQ when Welke made his egregious call. I promise I am not a one-trick pony constantly calling out bad umpiring. However, Major League Baseball won't do it. It's almost afraid to take on the powerful umpire's union.
Either that or Miller had money on the Rays. (I DON'T want to go there, but after the Tim Donaghy referee scandal in the NBA, you have to ask that question these days.)
Whatever the case, Lawrie is likely headed for a suspension. He deserves it.
The fan is likely headed for a date in court, or at least a temporary ban from the Rogers Centre/Skydome. He deserves it.
Miller, on the other hand, gets off scot-free.
He doesn't deserve that.
