The umpire from the Milton Bradley incident has been suspended. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3037237
I know Al and others have talked about Umps being or trying to become part of the show (I can't help but think of that ump this past weekend with the highly exaggerated strike call).
I have several questions.
- How often does this sort of suspension for an ump happen? Are there other ramifications for umpires in their behavior?
- Should it happen more often?
- Will this help the complaint of umps trying to be the show?
