Eddings Still Sucks

Umpire Doug Eddings, obviously smarting from all of the attention that Joey Crawford has recently received, went out of his way to reclaim his title of biggest douche nozzle of an official.

How you ask? By making fun of David Wells weight. The following took place after Eddings missed a few calls last night. (Go figure.)

Following a bang-bang play at first -- where Eddings ruled that Thompson missed first base, allowing Callaspo to reach -- Wells boiled over.

But he said Eddings took it a step further as the umpire "rubbed his belly" as if to call Wells "fat."

Said Wells: "I thought (Thompson's) foot was on (the bag). Replay shows it did and that's where the frustration comes out ... I understand they're trying to do their job as well. You get riled up. I got riled up. I said, 'You didn't miss one, you missed two.' Things started heating up and he was over there chirping and chirping and he tossed me out. Then he made a gesture ... that to me is stepping over the line. I take it personally."


Well played Doug, you are the undisputed king of the a-hole officials.

The FSN-Arizona microphones broadcast a pretty loud, "Fuck you, Ump!" chant coming from the San Diego crowd after Wells was tossed.

I think it's hilarious that the ump made fun of the fatso. Good for the ump! MLB is a drugged-up, lardass parade to begin with and a national embarrassment. Serves Wells right for being a big fat fuck.

You know, the whole Crawford thing got me thinking. I can't see some pudgy bald ref stepping to Wilt, Kareem or Shaq. Has there ever been a softer big man than Duncan? Oh wait... that's right... There was David Robinson. Thanks, NBA. If Robinson had gone on to a career in the Navy, we'd all being speaking Iraqi right now. My verification word is "ilmevh" which, if I'm not mistaken, was what David Wells called his penis the last time he saw it in 1989...

The guy in the photo in the red hat says everything about MLB. Look at him... eating and yelling at the same time. And those poor buttons, working so hard to contain the blubber. Somewhere there's a battered wife who has to sew new buttons on that shirt after every game.

And why are they angry at the ump?
Because he called a baseball player "fat." The nerve!

If Wells doesn't want to be called a lardass he should go on a diet and start excercizing. He won't get any excercize playing baseball, except for the workout his thumb muscle gets from working the syringe.
