Before you say it wasn’t the worst strike 3 call in MLB history read this.
Marty Foster, you stink.
Anyway, that called third strike on Tony Kemp in the ninth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Phillies set a lot of people off and for good reason. I mean, look at this shit.
Yet, Kemp kept his cool throughout all of it. He didn’t explode going after Foster following the call on the field and he even joked about it on Twitter.
Following the 4-2 loss Kemp spoke to reporters and he was as classy as it gets.
And you know what? It really does sound like Kemp genuinely feels that way and isn’t just trying to bite his tongue and go off on how awful the call was. If he was? That’s a great job not showing any rage.
Both and Kemp and Nick Castellanos seem like great dudes, which is always a cool thing. Here’s a little more from Kemp. (Video here too)
With all that being said, can MLB please do something about Marty Foster because he absolutely blows.
Forget about trying to improve the pace of play, give me robot umpires calling balls and strikes ASAP.
