ANAHEIM -- The umpire who made the controversial dropped third strike call in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series said yesterday he "absolutely" made the right call, but admitted he was wrong in the manner in which he called it.
"I think I've got to change my mechanic a little," Doug Eddings said upon arriving at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Calif. Eddings' raised, clenched fist for a strike call is similar to a traditional out call. "That's why I feel bad. I should have given a safe sign."
Change your mechanic a little? How about just adopting a mechanic you Douche? That would be helpful and communicative and fair.
Or you could just continue to call and signal everything in that beautiful mind of yours. And we could just pretend this all didn't happen. You Douche!
