Tim Tschida at it Again

I've thought for at least a decade now that Tim Tschida is the worst umpire in all of baseball. I never see a game that he's an umpire that he doesn't pull off making a horrbile call. I've been watching the Mets game for the past 15 minutes, and he's at it again.

Evidently, earlier in the game, Tschida messed up a home run call, but I haven't seen that yet.

What I saw was Duanar Sanchez give up back-to-back home runs in the 8th inning to blow the Mets 4-run lead. With the game tied at 8, and 1 out in the bottom of the 8th, Sanchez hits the next Brewer batter in the back (not near his head). Tschida immediately ejects him from the game. No warnings had been issued earlier, so if he thought it was intentional, he could have just issued a warning. But it wasn't intentional. The pitch got away. No pitcher in the Majors would intentionally throw at a batter in the 8th inning in a tie ballgame. Nobody.

Not surprisingly Willie Randolph would get ejected as well.

Another horrible call by Tschida. He is baseball's worst umpire.
