I’m sure pretty much all of you reading this were trying to turn $3 into $100,000 in what turned out to be a low scoring Swing for the Fences tournament last night.
36.5% of you (including myself multiple times) rostered Bryce Harper in an attempt to do so. Home plate ump Marvin Hudson doesn’t give a crap about that, because he threw Harper out of the game for nothing last night.
This was ridiculous. I heard last night that Harper had been thrown out for arguing a call, and just figured he got hot and got in the ump’s face like he has in the past. Then I saw the video. Nope, Harper stepped out of the box to get out of the way of his manger coming to argue a call … anddd that’s enough out of you, you’re tossed.
Tough not to hate when refs/umps toss players for doing nothing. Even tougher not to hate when it’s the hottest player in the game on the night of a huge DK tournament. Not a good look, MLB.
