Pic of the Week

Two umpires with but a single thought: You gotta go.
This double barrelled ejection came in the seventh inning
last Sunday.
How many umpires does it take to toss Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle?

In this case, two. Or, subjectively, one good ump (Jerry Layne, left) and one poor ump (Bob Davidson, right).

"Balkin' Bob" Davidson may not be the worst umpire in the majors, but if he isn't he's certainly in the running. Davidson was the ump on Friday who missed the call on Ben Revere's diving catch. No real surprise there — Davidson can't seem to get through a series without messing something up.
