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.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
