Tim Welke makes one of the worst calls you?ve ever seen in baseball


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this Weams. Helton was closer to handing a pair of glasses to Welke than he was to the base.

Wow, this is even worse than the Julio Lugo call last year at home plate. All praises due to Commissioner Bud Selig! Seriously, put an extra ump in a suite and call it a day.

The umpiring the last 2 years has been brutal.

Can we get rid of these lazy umpires and Selig, good riddance.

I just don't even know what the explanation would be on a call like that. Honestly, what are you looking at in that instance? Helton is like three feet from the base.

The Ump managed to position himself perfectly so that the first baseman completely obstructed his view.

Yeah that was the worst play I've ever seen. The umps are just terrible. I think they need to put in some new umps. Maybe nit so old they can't see anything anymore. Or add some kind of quick replay system. Im not sure how I feel about it, but these umps are just so terrible

    • What would it take to get Danny Jansen? McCann has been an offensive zero and is on pace for 220 ABs. A solid backup catcher would really help on those nights when Adley is DHing. 
    • The bottom line is that right now they feel the team is better balancing offense and defense with Urias and/or Mateo playing the infield over bringing up Mayo.  That opinion may change tomorrow or it might not until much later.  They think they will win more games with the veterans than throwing another rookie in the mix.  I think they will give Kjersted a good 3-4 week run and if he produces that will continue.  Kjersted and/or Mayo could also get traded for the right deal as well if it significantly helps the pitching staff.  
    • Higher than Tarik Skubal? The guy is a top 10 starter in baseball. 
    • The offense will be fine.  You can’t expect them to score 5 runs a game against the best pitching staffs.  The last 4 of 5 series we have faced the Braves 8th in ERA, the Phillies 1st in ERA, the Yankees 2nd in ERA, and the Guardians, 5th in ERA.  The Astros are 20th but Blanco is 3rd in ERA and Valdez is very good.  The other teams have good players as well so it comes down to getting a few timely hits and converting your chances.  We need someone to get that big hit which we haven’t gotten the last 3 games going 1-14.  
    • I got to ask Kevin Brown a question today. So I asked him which stadium has the best broadcast booth. He responded by saying that Camden Yards does, and that he was not saying that as a homer, but (and I am paraphrasing) that with size, dimension and placement as consideration, the one at Camden Yards is just the best.
    • Westburg has 8-9 errors too...
    • You could say the exact same thing about the last three games skewing the data that the offense a lot.  They had scored 4.6 runs a game against the Braves, Phillies, and Yankees going into the last game against New York.  That is with facing Fried, Suarez, Wheeler, Cortes, and Cole along with a very good to great bullpen from the Braves, Yanks, and Phillies.  The Phillies have the best ERa in the league at 3.09 and we scored 17 runs in 3 games which is almost 6 runs a game.  The Yankees Era is 3.21 and we scored 9 runs in two games then 17 the last game.  The Braves ERa is 3.59 and we scored 11 runs in 3 games.  So to say the offense has not been good for two weeks is just wrong.  They haven’t been good for the last 3 games.  They were decent vs the Braves, great against the Phillies, pretty good 1st two games vs Yanks.  Amazing the last Yankees game and 1st Astros game and then been horrible last 3.
