From last Friday night, here's Bob Brenly after C.B. Bucknor made a few, ahem, questionable strike-zone judgments:
Man, he's bad ... I mean, this has been going on ever since this guy got to the big leagues. It's just a joke. If a hitter had as much problems at the plate as C.B. does behind it, he'd either be in the minor leagues or carrying a lunch bucket somewhere.
By most accounts, Bucknor's been one of MLB's worst umpires for many years. His continuing employment is a signal that the system is imperfect. Which Brenly seems to relish pointing out.
