MLB removes Hernandez from West's umpire crew

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Major League Baseball has split up two of the worst umpires in the game -- moving Angel Hernandez from Joe West's crew, at least for the start of the second half of the season, the Dallas Morning News' Gerry Fraley noted.

West's crew received Sam Holbrook from Gerry Davis' umpire crew in exchange for Hernandez in a trade as lopsided as Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas.

West and Hernandez had a combined six ejections in eight days leading up to the All-Star break, including Rangers manager Ron Washington, who responded after the game by saying Hernandez "is just bad." He will be fined, no doubt, for speaking the truth.

Fraley said it was the only significant change in umpiring crews for the second half.

Mariners' Bradley appealing suspension

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Milton BradleyMariners outfielder Milton Bradley has dropped his appeal of a one-game suspension levied against him -- along with an undisclosed fine -- following his ejection in Saturday's game at Fenway Park.

MLB announced the suspension and fine on Tuesday. Bradley had intially planned on appealing the suspension, but changed his mind and decided to serve the suspension tonight against the Rangers.

According to the Seattle Times, the suspension was because Bradley made contact with second-base umpire Gerry Davis with the bill of his helmet during the argument.
