The original question had the answer that Cliff wasn't the one. Did such a person even exist?

They simply can't grasp the fact that umpires have ceased to be relevant in this technologically advanced world.

K-daffy messed up Libya for only 43 years, while umpires messed up baseball for more than a century. It is time to show that they can be struck back for all the bad deeds, attitudes and missed calls.

Got me! I'll plead guilty, and eat the 50$ fine, and time served. OK.
But, man, to call for the death of umpires, on not just one thread, but multiple threads.....damn. I barely had time to make this comment. Don't you like, have a f***en' life, or something??
THAT is the issue here, not the umpiring, but, rather, that you Don't. Have. A. Life.
Get one, maybe?

A ridiculous question to ask, considering the small sample size.

I think he answered tonight.

They decided to make up what Denkinger had done on today.

The collapse of the Rangers didn't occur until they messed up.

One day an umpire who made a crucial bad call will end up like K-daffy. I look forward seeing the day soon.

It'd be cool if it was broken down into most used in a 4-game series, 5-game series, etc.
