    It’s more than the continued futility of the A’s. Oakland has been abandoned by the Raiders (after being screwed by them before, twice) and the Warriors left after finally achieving some success.

    I think they’re tired of being jerked around. They always seem like pawns to be used to get bigger, shinier toys.

    Anyone who has been to Oakland or the East Bay for that matter knows this is not a major league team environment. Even the residents seem to realize this now, and don’t really care. There are a hell of a lot more important issues they need to take care of now.

    Oakland should rebrand themselves in a way that views San Francisco as the ghetto wasteland on the other side of the bridge to Oaklands classic old school ghetto emeritus status.

    Because Angel Hernandez sucks donkey balls ....

    https://nypost.com/2022/04/25/phillies-fan-confronts-angel-hernandez-in-parking-lot/

    Looks like Angel Hernandez will maintain his reputation as MLB’s worst umpire.

    Hernandez was behind the plate Sunday night for a Phillies-Brewers matchup and blew repeated calls – much to the chagrin of players and fans alike.

    The 60-year-old missed 19 calls, including calling a strike for a pitch that missed the the box by a season-high 6.47 inches. According to Umpire Auditor, Hernandez’s correct percentage stood at a measly 85.3 percent.

    One Phillies fan wanted to speak his mind to Hernandez after the game and waited for him in the parking lot.

    When Hernandez drove by, the furious fan shouted toward the umpire’s car. “Angel Hernandez you stink,” he yelled. “I don’t like you.” Hernandez simply responded with a smile as he drove away.

    During Sunday’s brutal game, both teams repeatedly complained about Hernandez’s calls. Kyle Schwarber was ejected in the ninth inning for going off on the ump after yet another terrible one.

    The left fielder threw his bat and helmet after being called out, confronted Hernandez over his judgement and stormed back to the dugout. Schwarber returned once more to remind Hernandez of what a terrible job he was doing before leaving the game.

    “Everyone kind of saw what was going on,” Schwarber said. “I’m not here to bury anyone, but that wasn’t very good. You wish that, I don’t know how to really say it, it just wasn’t very good.”

    ESPN “Sunday Night Baseball” analyst David Cone chipped in on the broadcast to agree with Schwarber’s frustrations. “I’m surprised it took this long for somebody to have that kind of an outburst,” he said.

    I'm a little disappointed in that Philly fan. The best that guy could come up with is "you stink"?

    The guy must hate himself to bring such abuse on his own ineptitude with such joy.

    I predict his name will become synonymous with bad calls. Not everyone will get this reference, but just like "You Bundy'd that book," soon when an ump screws up, he's gonna hear, "You really Angel'd that call."

    It’s incredible how influential a baseball ump can be. I can’t think of any sport where one non-player/non-coach can single handedly make or break a game.

    Think about it. The home plate umpire can be the difference between a pitcher giving up 10 runs or pitching a no-hitter.

    And there is a viable and reliable solution that is not being implemented because of “tradition”.

    Fernandez is the living embodiment of how badly a tradition can be. Baseball has always had this problem. Its failure to address “tradition” problems over the decades is perhaps a reason why everyone is wringing their hands over the future is the game.

    great
    • It sounds like Andrew Heaney could be out a little bit longer than initially thought. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke about him before the game on Wednesday afternoon and said they wanted to play it safe. Heaney has yet to pick up a baseball since being placed on the injured list with shoulder discomfort.

    Dodger starters over past 11 games: 7-0 with a 1.31 ERA.

    Great pitching, dead ball, or both?
