CHRISTMAS IN JULY THANKS TO Mister MAGOO

Last time I checked Christmas was on December 25th each and every year.

On Christmas it is customary that you give family and fiends gifts.

Well Christmas came a little early in the Central Park Big Apple yesterday,
as Head Ump Mr. Johnson and his partner Mr. Washington
handed handed game 1 of the double header to Contact, and then embarrassed and disrespected the game in the nightcap with their blatant incompetence.
(I apologize if I got their names wrong even though they owe West an apology for their poor judgement, effort and performance in today's Championship rematch between West-Contact).

Before I go on, I hate arguing and blaming umps.
Repeat I hate it.
It's weak and childish.
As a part-time ump I give umps the benefit of the doubt. Especially when they hustle.

But Dumb and Dumber yesterday were a joke



The game 1 blotter for the dynamic duo of Johnson/Washington in Game One was as follows:

(1) Virgin tight strike zone - more on this later
(2) The Field Ump - Mr Johnson not being in position to call the tail end of a crucial 7th inning double play and saying "I didn't see it". What ump in his right mind would say that on a play he was responsible for??? Answer: Not a good one.
He pointed to the home plate umpire who was standing behind our catcher to make the call (nice hustle). He said safe of course b/c it was safe to do so and b/c he was too lazy to more from behind home plate.

I bet you Mister Magoo would have saw it.



Mr "Head Ump"Johnson is the worse and he is confrontational.

(3) 1 play later, with the tying tun about to score at home plate umpire - the Lovable Mr Washington does not call the contact batter out at home for not sliding. The contact runner ran directly into the catcher. He said "it was my judgement call".
Give me a break.
The rule is slide or give yourself up.
You have no heart or balls.


(4) Now with the Bases loaded and 1 out, our pitcher throws not 1 but 2 pitches right down the middle to a "Crouching Tiger" Mike Trenk.
Both pitches are called ball.
Pathetic.
Then with the count 3-1 the worse non-call I have ever seen occurred.
Again "Crouching Tiger" Trenk takes a pitch down the middle and walks about 3/4 pf the way down to 1st, then the Lovable Mr. Washinton raises his arm and made the most unsure strike called I have ever seen to not only further provoke everyone but prolong the agony.
Needless to say "Crouching Tiger" Trenk then took another pitch right down the middle that spite full and moronic Washington called ball four.

Wow.

Game 1 gift wrapped and a bow placed on it for Contact.

In that game I pooped up with the bases loaded.
Murphy pitched a gem.
We made errors.
But despite all that we had that game, but the umps took that away from us.
Players decide games not ump.
That bombastic idiot Washington cost us that game.


Now the situation had become goon heaven with everyone angry and upset.
To defuse the situation I asked commissioner Jeff Marcus to switch umpire Washington to another game.But Washington decided to stick around. Our loss, well almost, more on that later

Just when you think things were bad Gama 2 rolled around.

The game begins with Contact scoring 1 run and having a man on 3rd with one out ( 3 Batters have taken their turn), all of a sudden the game stops for well over 10 minutes.

No hits.
No runs.
No errors.
Nada.

Why b/c Contact cleanup batter was not there.
He was off on his bike somewhere.
Contact had not submitted a lineup.
And Mr Magoo umpire stands around and does nothing.
He stands their like officer Bar Brady from South Park "Nothing to see here people Nothing to see"



He doesn't tell the starter to pitch.
He doesn't say batter up.
Nada.

Of course by this point West is mad.
Sorry I meant to say very fucking mad. With good reason.
Allegedly West starting pitcher Jimmy Meyers then asked Mr. Magoo to get the game going and Mr. Magoo told him to don't fing talk to me, Then Meyers cursed at him and Mister Magoo tossed him.
Are you Fing kidding me!!!?!?!??!
You and your incompetent partner blow game one and then you ejected our Starter in the 1st inning of game 2 without a warning after you instigated the situation

It's embarrassing and deplorable.

You Both Suck.

I asked my manager John Sheppard to vote Mr. Magoo out of the playoffs in umpire review. Now I will ask him to get rid of Washington as well.

Then again Mister Magoo is "The Head Ump" so it's tough for him to get a negative review.

P.S. We won game two salvaging our day and keeping our playoff hopes alive.

P.S.S. As a final act of protest we refused to hand the umpires their money and gave the funds to commissioner Jeff Marcus to disburse. They did not deserve any respect

  1. Can you find out if there is a RULE about telling an umpire he is a piece of shit everytime i walk past him in park before games.
    He probably will throw me out of game before it starts.
    John better look into a situation where that UMP is behind plate when i pitch, because he WILL screw me and make it PERSONAL. So John needs to get on Jeff Marcus about these UMPS. If he cant do anything, i should not pitch if that UMP is behind plate. He is very confrontational and has been like that with me for years because i know the game better then he does.
    IF HE WAS DOING HIS JOB, THE LINEUPS SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN HIS HAND BEFORE GAME STARTS(1 PITCH SHOULD NOT BE THROWN AND THE OTHER TEAM SHOULD BE PENALIZED IN SOMEWAY, LIKE STRIKES BEING CALLED UNTIL LINEUP IS GIVEN TO UMPIRE.)
    I FACED 2 BATTERS AND THEN CONTACT REALIZED THEIR PLAYER WASNT AROUND AND THEN HAD TO SHUFFLE THINGS AROUND. SINCE LINEUP IS NOT IN UMPIRES HAND, THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY FUNNY BUSINESS GOING ON WITH LINEUP. THEY PROBABLY WANTED TO INSERT THAT PLAYER AT THE BOTTOM OF LINEUP IF THEY COULD.


    RICK HAS THE STORY CORRECT AND I DONT CURSE UNLESS CURSED AT. I WILL GET THROWN OUT OF GAMES WHEN THE GAME IS OUT OF HAND OR IT DOESNT MATTER. HOWEVER, THIS UMP MAKES IT PERSONAL AND IS LIKE THTA EVERY TIME I PLAY. MURPHY WAS CALLING THEM COCK-SUCKERS FOR THE LAST 4 INNINGS OF 1ST GAME AND AFTER AND NOTHING WAS DONE.

    IF I TELL HIM OFF WHILE THEY ARE CHANGING THEIR CLOTHES BEFORE GAME, CAN THEY DO ANYTHING TO ME OR TEAM? FIND OUT. IM GIVING HIM NO RESPECT WHATSOEVER!!

    PEACE,
    JIMMY MEYERS

    IM GLAD YOU PULLED OUT 2ND GAME!!!! WE CANT GO DOWN AS NOT MAKING PLAYOFFS, WE ARE TO DAMN GOOD!!!!AND WE HAVE TO LAY INTO THESE PANSIES IN THIS LEAGUE-THEY CANT DEAL WITH OUR ALL OUT ASSUALT. WE NEVER SAY DIE AND NEVER GIVE UP. THEY EXPECT US TO FOLD BECAUSE WE ARGUE BUT ITS BECAUSE THIS LEAGUE HAS SHITY,SHITTY,SHITTY ASS UMPIRES AND JEFF DOES NOT TAKE CONTROL WHEN HE NEEDS TO,HE IS TO NICE AND LETS CERTAIN PPL REALLY RUN LEAGUE, WHO ARE BASICALLY PICK-UP PLAYERS. THEY SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ON SAME FIELD AS US OR IN ANY OTHER REAL LEAGUE.

    FOR ME TO GET THROWN OUT LIKE TODAY, JUST SHOWS YOU WHAT WE ARE UP AGAINST!!!!
    WEAK-ASS SHIT!

  2. Hey guys,

    Unfortunately this is an old story. Getting the right umpires seems to be an impossible task. It definitely takes away from the enjoyment of simply playing a few games of softball. It's not going to get any better unless a full change is made and let's be honest, that may not make any difference in the end. Bottom line, they don't do a great job but unfortunately, we should all be used to it by now. We simply have to adjust to what it is. It's not going away.

    Peace and great luck on your attempts to make the playoffs. You guys are too good not to make it.

  3. Get rid of Mr johnson. He's cancer to the league. He acts and works like he's not accountable for his actions.

    Jeff & John, just do it. You'll feel better in the morning.

  5. as soon as i saw johnson walk on the field yesterday i knew we were doomed! im not gonna blame the game one loss on him because we did enough on our own to lose that game. including my big error!!! but its time to put johnson out to pasture!! this guy just can't do the job! he cant move,he can't see 2 feet in front of him, he doesnt make a sound when hes behind the plate. you have to guess what the call is. he like 90 yrs old c'mon guys whats the reason for him to continue. all he brings is incompetance. and the league suffers for it. the other guy mr washington is fine. i thought he was calling a pretty good game yasterday. he gave a little slack when murph was losing it and i appreciate that. but i do belive he got sick of it at the end and started to squeeze murph a little. but over all i think he is a good ump. and its a shame that he gets stuck with johnson every week!!!! to my great surprise yesterday i found out that not only is this incompetant mr johnson being allowed to call games, but he's the HEAD UMP. thats a bigger joke than him being able to ump at all, and it reflects on the league. if your head ump is your most incompetant ump you got problems gents!!! wake up jeff and roseymiller! get em out a there!! and please dont further tarnish the solid rep that the big apple softball league has by putting this guy out there in the playoffs!!!

  6. Jimmy,

    Can your ego get any bigger. You are a crybaby and a fool.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I give you credit for not being a fool because you didnt leave your name.

    Why an i a crybaby and a fool? Because i know the game and the umps suck ass?
    He let Contact hold up game for 15 minutes and then told me that he is doing his fuking job. After i asked him a simple question, i wanted him to make sure that it was official the PINCH HITTER was announced. Then he curses at me that he is doing his job.

    Fuk you and ill cry if i want to and ive won enough Chips to have an EGO. Every ballplayer has an EGO or they wouldnt play. You must be 1 of those players that join teams and only plays when they are short players. They let you join because you are NICE and DONT CRY! GOOD FOR YOU, im so happy your better then me.
    I dont give a rats ass what you say about me, i know me and i play to win and fair, however if i see injustice im speaking my mind.
    Kiss my ass!
    You know me but i dont know you-so dont be a coward and hide behind keyboard. You are probably one of those ppl that shake my hand even though you hate me. Thats a two-faced scumbag! Be a man and show your true colors. So when we see each other we dont have to say hello.
    So lets see what you do?

  8. Totally agree with you Jimmy. People talk shit about other people, then don't post there names. They hide behind that anonymous shit. You're right it's the people who shake your hand and talk shit behind your back! One more complaint I have is that Rosenmiller calls out our team as crybabies because we let the umps know how we feel. When your the defacto commish and you get everything your way, it's easy to call other guys babies. We don't argue every game, it justs feels like that because we get stuck with Johnson almost every game. We asked Jeff to split up the umps for 2nd game so it did'nt get out of hand, but ump Washington told Jeff that he was'nt going anywhere. Imagine an ump telling me the commish that he was'nt going where I send him, he no longer would ump in my league, there are plenty of other scrub umps out there. These umps are a joke, Johnson takes CONTROL in the second game! not the 1st because as he said he was not the home plate ump! HEAD UMP YOU COULD BE IN CENTERFIELD IF A GAME NEEDS TO BE PUT IN CHECK YOU PUT IT IN CHECK.And for Rosenmiller if you think I'm a crybaby, how often do you watch our games? I talk 2 the umps and try to be respectful, you act as if you don't know the umps in this league sux, they want respect but don't give it. You talk 2 me I talk 2 u. Just so u know you won't have to worry about these crybabies next year okay buddy!

  9. Mr. Johnson was an umpire at Gunn Sports 5-6 years ago and was having issues calling a good game back then. He had issues when you approached him with a difference of opinion during the course of the game and took it personal.

    Outside of the game he's a nice person but we know him on the field. On the field he does one thing consistently and that's call a bad game.

    The fact that he is the CHIEF umpire is a reflection of the league. It's hard to get good umpires, and if your chief doesn't know how to call a good game how can he instill that in his crew?

    I personally would have 86'd Johnson and his partner for the game.

  11. 1st year in league and win it all!!!!
    Pretty weak league to let a team do that and they dont pay a single player!!!
    That is called a TEAM of BALLPLAYERS!!!! they have heart and play hard to win. They cry and moan and bitch just like every team. SO DONT EVEN THINK OF SAYING THEY ARE THE ONLY TEAM TO BITCH IN GAMES.
    If i video taped every game for 2 weeks id bet a million bucks you will see alot of players crying.

  12. Does Choice Parts have a goon?
    Last year, Eddie Brown had to be restrained from killing UMP in playoff game vs WEST.

    West cried all the way to CHIP last year.

    You speak through computer with slander but dont sign name, that makes you a bitch ass phony.
    Like the old grammer school saying" sticks and stones might break my bones but words can never harm me." Call us all the names you want, we heard everything but its always from ppl with no balls.
