'Dweeb of the Week, Joe Torre,' just another politician-Raissman
"For not holding Dana DeMuth accountable. When the dust settled following the controversy over Billy Butler's home run Wednesday night in K.C. one fact was clear: The ump didn't know the ground rules. That's kind of important, right? Instead of sending a message, Torre sent excuses. He said DeMuth felt bad about the mistake, and this all was about a "misunderstanding" of the rule. Torre did absolutely nothing for fans who lack confidence in the current crop of umpires. Until further notice Torre's decision to not even issue a slap on the wrist means the VP of baseball operations office deals
- in baseball politics rather than baseball justice."
