Rogue umpire Bill Hohn and the Atlanta Braves have not gotten along very well this season.
It started at Fenway back in June when Hohn called a ball on a 2-2 pitch that was right down the middle to J.D. Drew. The next pitch Drew hit an RBI double.
A few innings later, when Braves reliever Eric O'Flaherty was squeezed on a similar pitch, Hohn tossed O'Flaherty, Bobby Cox, and Chipper Jones. Yes, on the same play.
The Braves lost the game as a direct result of the idiotic ball call.
Last night the Braves met up with Hohn's crew again. This time the home plate umpire was Jerry Meals. Hohn was at first.
Meals would cost the Braves the game in the bottom of the ninth by not calling pitches that were right down the middle for strikes.
Then came tonight. Hohn was in rare form yet again, calling strikes against the Braves that were literally a foot off the plate.
Yet when the Marlins were at bat, no such luck for Atlanta pitchers.
Cox was barking all evening until Hohn took things to another level.
In this list I will detail exactly what happened and will point out exactly why this rogue umpire should not only lose his job, but should also be forced to give back his pay for both of these games.
