The Top Ten
Are these guys accountable to anyone? I don't know how he's been allowed to do postseason games. I would welcome an electronic strike zone to get rid of this clown and Joe West, who think people come to the game to see them.
Obviously a short man with ego issues. Maybe the biggest reason to advance the game to electronic balls and strikes. Why rate umpires if they are not held accountable? Fire this unqualified joke of a professional.
The only thing worse than his competence is his arrogance. One of the earth's biggest mysteries is how this clown still has a job as an MLB umpire. I wouldn't trust him to umpire a Little League game.
The worst by a wide margin, and simply the most inconsistent ball/strike call in the entire game. Should NEVER be anywhere near a playoff game. He's so bad that I honestly feel bad, or embarrassed for him trying to make decisions.50 Comments
Shockingly bad for a long time. I am assuming that he must have been good at some point in his career however that ship has sailed. The only one who thinks that he is doing a good job is Joe Torre
Anyone but the MLB would fire this clown
Bad calls, short fuse. Part of the definition of a good referee is lack of ego; West is the opposite, it seems.
This guy needs to retire. Thinks he is the supreme overlord of baseball rules. There should be a test given to umpires before the season.8 Comments
Horrible on balls & strikes. Very arrogant with a short fuse. Should be fired!
No concept of where the strick zone is and should be banned from the game--even as a spectator.
Beautiful combination of a wildly inconsistent strike zone, bad calls around the entire diamond, and a fuse so short when he's called out that there's no doubt how well aware he is of just how bad he is.
Horrible strike zone!8 Comments
Short tempered, especially against Joe Maddon and Charlie Manuel which I thought the incident between Bob and Charlie was hilarious even though MLB suspended them both for one game.
Bob Davidson is a cranky ass.
Davidson is precisely the most controversial umpire if you want to argue with him. - wisconsinboy
No concept of a strike zone.
Goes out of his way to suck.
I remember watching the blue jays game on canada day 2016... Vic carapazza is the worst umpire in the mlb
Inconsistent strike zone doesn’t know the rules
I am watching him tonight and he can't call a strike unless the batter swings at it.
Doesn't know a strike from a ball.
He robbed the game away from the Rays in Texas by calling strike three on a full count from Ben Zobrist whichever the pitch was clearly out of the strike zone.
He blew the game for the Pirates and it would have cost them playoff contention. - wisconsinboy
Majorly insecure, huge ego
No mea culpable, bad Ronald Clarence ends games when Opentable calls.
Disrespectful and unprofessional.
Along with Hernandez and Bucknor, you KNOW that you'll be amazed at how bad they are before the end of the first inning.
This guy looks like someone who is recruited from off the street to ump a game because there's no one else around to do it.
When you see him (or the other aforementioned clowns) on the diamond before the game starts, the first words out of your mouth are "Oh no, NOT HIM! "
Brings new meaning to the word INCOMPETENT.
Awful Strike zone. He may need new glasses. Pulls the rip cord on 2 strikes. Not sure he ever knows the count..
Seems to forget that people don't pay to watch him. Thinks he's bigger than the players.
Inconsistent strike zone and always has a chip on his shoulder.2 Comments
Cost a pitcher major record. Pathetic at his "job". Should never work another game. Needs to be dropping fries.
Bad for many years. Preety sure he is being paid off
Worst I’ve seen this season.
It’s the incredible vanishing strike zone! I guess he blows an equal number of calls for both teams, so that’s fair I guess. I wish he wouldn’t call time *while the ball is traveling to the plate*, though.
Maddon 19 is a waste of money
Inconsistent strike zone. Short tempered. Throws managers and players out of a game way to quickly.
Needs remedial instruction on strike zone. Simply ridiculous.
Worst ball/strike umpire I’ve seen since Ken Kaiser. When Kaiser left the game, he gave his coin to Gibson (heads = strike, tails = ball),
Worst home plate umpire.zone is at the ankles.
Extremely inconsistent strike zone. Pitches that are balls are called strikes and vice versa.
