Cuddyer was thrown out by catcher Kurt Suzuki trying to score from second. He appeared to be safe and Twins manager Ron Gardenhire stepped between him and plate umpire Mike Muchlinski as the outfielder argued the call. Cuddyer slammed his helmet down and later said, “There’s no doubt in my mind I was safe.”
I have absolutely no interest in the Athletics or the Twins, but this was maybe the worst call I have ever seen.
Granted the Twins were up 12-2 in the 3rd inning and never should have even been in position to lose this game, but LOOK at this GD play:
That’s not even CLOSE. I feel like this is something that is said every year, but MLB umpires have been ABOMINABLE this season.
For Sure NOT MLB Umpires
(PS – Take a look at the top right corner of the first screenshot….”FS Twins”)
