Umpire C.B. Bucknor Makes the Call

Umpire C.B. Bucknor made some unbelievably poor calls in Thursday night’s Red Sox loss to the Angels. While his calls didn’t directly affect the final outcome, it left Sox fans feeling sick…and worried. Worried because Mr. Bucknor will be the umpire behind the plate in Friday night’s game against the Angels in Game 2.

Some fans took it upon themselves to help “correct” C.B. Bucknor’s Wikipedia entry. Pretty funny stuff! Check it out here.

Here’s two of Bucknor’s calls Thursday night, and how I feel he’d view other “close” calls in major league history:

  2. [...] Fans of horrible umpiring should be excited, because the Red Sox tonight get C.B. Bucknor as home plate ump. Bucknor’s a two-winner of the Worst Umpire in baseball poll, and showed why last night, with two calls that were comically horrendous, which seems to be close to his per-game average. [...]

  5. Joaquin Andujar would have taken care of business with Mr. C.B. Bucknor. Through the first round of the playoffs, the MLB umpires receive a Tom Delay score of 16.
