Madison Bumgarner and Umpire Joe West Engage in Epic Stare Down

A lumberjack and an old man stare at each other.


So this happened yesterday during the Giants-Padres game. It’s obvious Bumgarner is pissed about surrendering a walk during a key situation, but he also probably wasn’t getting the calls he wanted because well, Joe West happened. West is a notoriously horrible umpire and it probably was his fault. Not to mention his turkey neck.

Though I don’t like Joe West, he’s got some balls to stare down a lumberjack like that. Honestly, Mr. West, have you seen Bumgarner? I mean damn. He is a grown ass man. Have you seen that guy swing a baseball bat? I definitely wouldn’t have the chops to do that.
