Our old pals Tony Randazzo and Jordan Baker should have another set of companions in internet ignominy today: third-base ump Cory Blaser and first-base ump Ed Hickox both blew calls in the 12th inning of Padres-Rockes last night. And each of those blown calls came on the play where the Padres scored the winning run. So why isn't the pair the target of ten thousand 140-character screeds?
It's not—remarkably—because no one cares about a Thursday night Rockies-Padres game in early June. No, rather, the umpires were fortunate enough to have their errors more or less cancel one another out. Two wrongs make a right! More wrongs for everyone!
