Post Umpire Marty Foster's terrible 'strike three' call
Wow.

Umpire Marty Foster later admitted he was wrong, but his contrition mattered little to the Tampa Bay Rays, who found themselves on the bad end of a worse call in a 5-4 loss Monday night to the Texas Rangers. Just listening to the descriptions by the radio/TV guys in the highlight reel tells you everything you need to know.

Further proving my theory that umpires and officials can and will end a game whenever and however they want. I still think Jim Joyce should have been suspended for a week without pay for his call at the end of that perfect game a few years back. If i screwed up that badly in my job i would probably be fired.

Disgusting. Refs suck. I hope him and whatever ref that was (Cant remember his name) that messed up that call in Seattle never find jobs as officials again, do your #### job and do it right.
