First base umpire Angel Hernandez was almost impossibly bad at his job on Monday night during Game 3 of the ALDS, with three of his safe/out calls at first base overturned after replay review.
Hernandez, who was savaged by the fans at Yankee Stadium while making awful calls against both the Yankees and Red Sox, told Luke Voit at one point during the game that he'll "get the next one right." And Voit wasn't a fan of that attempt at humor.
"These guys are human," Voit said. "They are going to make mistakes. It's tough though, the delays while the play gets reviewed. It kind of breaks up the game."
On the TBS postgame show, Pedro Martinez also took it to Hernandez -- who will be the home plate umpire for Game 4.
"Angel was horrible," Martinez said, according to NESN. "Don't get me going on Angel now. Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel. It doesn't matter how many times he sues Major League Baseball. He's as bad as there is."
Hernandez sued the league in 2017, claiming he had been routinely passed over for a promotion to crew-chief and for postseason assignments, citing racial discrimination. That federal case was recently moved to a New York court.
Nearly as laughable as Hernandez suing the league for being awful at his job are the three calls below that he blew on Monday night...
