Adrian Johnson has to be THE worst umpire in MLB. We all know about that abomination game of 16 walks called earlier this year with the Mets and Phillies but did anyone see him reverse his call in the Twins and Brewers game on Sunday night just because the Twins manager, Rod Gardenheir argued with him about Joe Mauer being hit on the hand. The Brewers got screwed because the next guy up, Justin Morneau smacked a grand slam.
Then he has a controversial call last night in the Mets and Nationals game that gets upheld but shouldn't have on a Gary Sheffield home run. This guy is awful!!! He needs to be run down to Little League!!
Then I read the box score and find out that this crew has called ANOTHER 16 walk game!!!!!!! I know that the Nationals pitching isn't that good but John Lannan and John Maine are not THAT bad!!!
If this was one bad call I wouldn't make a beef and but I have been noticing a bad pattern with this crew in lots of different game where I don't have a rooting interest.
Maybe the Cubs Milton Bradley has a point about the umps being out to get him if you got bonehead umps like this calling games!!!!

Worst Umpiring Crew in MLB??

You should have seen the Twins vs Red Sox yesterday. Talk about an itchy trigger finger. In the top half of the 7th the Twins catcher and manager were tossed, in the bottom half it was the Red Sox's turn to loose there catcher and manager. The guys name is Todd Tichenor. I think he just got called up from AAA too, i guess he wanted to be sure he made Sports Center.
