Should This Umpire be Fired?

Umpire Scott Barry sardonically mimics Ryan Howard before ejecting him.

I say yes.

(A little backstory, this was from last night’s game when Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard received a second check-swing strike from the third base umpire Scott Barry. Howard put his hands on his hips and this umpire responded by mimicking Howard sardonically. Howard got mad and was ejected from the game seconds later.

Howard’s also known as one of the nicest, funniest guys in the game, so it makes it even weirder.)

    I’m all for replacing the umpires with robots!
