Joe West is back at it everybody. Brock Holt was called out on a questionable strike three call, but that’s not even the main problem here. Holt yelled “God damn it” after West rung him up, and was promptly thrown out. I thought you had to drop something a lot more vulgar to get tossed, but apparently “God damn it” is enough when Cowboy Joe West is behind the plate. Maybe West is really religious and threw Holt out for using the Lord’s name is vain on a Sunday? That’s the only reasoning I can come up with, other than Joe West yet again wanting to make the game all about himself. I don’t know about everybody else, but that’s why I go to professional baseball games. Forget about the players, I want to see an umpire throw guys out for no reason.
By the way, I would really like to see more of these videos with stadium only audio. I love to hear the players/umpires yelling.
