Runge Suspended 1 Game!


Major League Baseball announced today that Umpire Brian Runge has been suspended for one game for his conduct, which included making contact with Manuel, during the incident. Runge's suspension will be served immediately. Mike Port, Vice President of Umpiring for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

When I watched the incident the other day, I couldn't believe what I saw. However, isn't this hypocrisy. I know MLB umpires are the officials of the game, so shouldn't they be held to a higher standard than managers? If a manager does that - how many games does he get? 5, 10?

1 game seems like a slap on a wrist... really what he did was beyond comprehension.

Any thoughts?

Yes, umpires should be held to a higher standard of accountability. No they won't because too many of them are holdovers from the Richie Phillips era, when the umpires were God and they knew it.

A month later and he tried his hardest to keep the Tigers from scoring the go-ahead run two straight days...

A horrible umpire
