Daniel Cabrera vs Carlos Silva

Strike 3 to Roberts was way outside.

...and low, and strike two was a bit inside. That was by far the worst start of a game for an umpire I have ever seen. Strike 3 was absolutely inexcusable. He really made a show of his late call of it as well. Apparently he has a case against Brian and doesn't realize he'll have to deal with the ladies of the OH. Brian Runge, welcome to the world of things even lower than C.B. Bucknor! :mad:

Ooh and he gets Nick too while I'm ranting about him. That one wasn't quite as bad but he owes the O's big time. Carlos Silva only got one Oriole out that inning, the umpire took care of the other two for him. I guess they were birthday gifts! I wish he would've just sent Silva a card! :002_smad: :mad::rolleyes:

All I'm gonna say is that Cabrera better get those same strikes called today. If he does, that could actually work to our advantage.

Yep, the bottom of the 1st will be very indicative. If DCab doesn't get the same latitude with the strike zone, it's going to be a long night.

FWIW, Runge's numbers as a plate ump:

2008 -- 7.75 rpg, 2 "overs" and 2 "unders" (i.e. 2 games that went over the established betting total, 2 that went under)

2007 -- 9.92 rpg, 19 overs, 15 unders

2006 -- 9.67 rpg, 15 overs, 14 unders

2005 -- 5.75 rpg, 2 overs, 5 unders

2004 -- 8.16 rpg, 11 overs, 20 unders

2003 -- 10.88 rpg, 21 overs, 12 unders

2002 -- 8.48 rpg, 15 overs, 14 unders

2001 -- 9.10 rpg, 6 overs, 13 unders

2000 -- 9.59 rpg, 15 overs, 17 unders

1999 -- 8.82 rpg, 7 overs, 9 undres

So the guy has been all over the map. There have been a few seasons where he has been a pretty significant "pitchers' umpire". But other years, not so much.
