Baseball Dumphires

It's getting to the point where I cant even watch a full game of baseball, and apparantley I'm not the only one. I can think of 5 guys that cant watch full games either. Angel Hernandez, Cb bucknor, Bruce Froemming,  Joe Hirschbeck, Joe West. When will baseball care enough about the game to add instant replay? It takes more time for a coach to go out and argue, or a pitcher to stall due to being upset with a horrible call. And why dont these umps ask for help when he obviously missed the play? When is baseball going to take the games out of the umpires hands and leave it to the players to decide outcomes. 
There are many more to be added to this list... I was watching a game yesterday when a player clearly doubles over the first base bag and the the guy looking directly at the play calls it foul. Balls and strikes change entire games, and dumpires like CB Buckner only gets about 50% of the non swinging calls correctly. This man has no idea of what the strikezone is , yet baseball keeps throwing him out there.


Shame on baseball for putting these blind, arrogant fools out there on a daily basis to ruin baseball.
