Good Job Blue Part 2

Gotta give more Umpire love
but this time I gotta recognize Central Park ump Bobby (left below)
Like any umpire Bobby is not flawless but he posses the following outstanding officiating characteristics:
  1. A solid knowledge of the game
  2. Is fair/impartial
  3. Is respected
  4. Reliable
  5. Excellent personality - totally non confrontational

It's always a pleasure to see him in the park.

A few days ago, he made a rare but correct call in a game when he called a batter out for not taking a full swing (AKA chop/bunt) during an at bat. It showed he has a clue and is aware of nuances and ebb and flow of the game. Good Job Blue - is now a sequel


  1. I love Bobby.
    He is the best.

  2. I agree. He is a class act. Cubans are good people.

  3. Cubans are good people lol...

  4. ask the pitcher if it was an inside knuckle ball that moved even further in. i think the batter was jammed on the fists and fought off a great 2 strike pitch for a hit. i think i saw the pitcher say it was a good hit.

  5. Cubans in the World Cup???
