Bumpin' Bourn!

I agree that Michael Bourn should not have bumped umpire Alfonso Marquez.......HE SHOULD HAVE DECKED HIM!!! If you watch the video you see Marquez move towards Bourn and Bourn's momentum carried him into Marquez. Yes, there was contact but there wouldn't have been if "Quick trigger" Marquez had not tossed Bourn that quickly and then moved towards him. Everyone in baseball knows and should understand the frustration these players are going through and there needs to be a little bit of give when it comes to outbursts of emotion like that. Had he thrown the helmet towards Marquez then I get it...but that was not the case. 

The aggressive nature of Marquez came out yet again Sunday when he walked around to confront Quintero. A professional umpire would NOT have handled that situation like that. Marquez should be suspended at least as long as Bourn has been for his actions.

Always look for something good to say:

Angel Hernandez now has legitimate competition for worst umpire in baseball.
