I hate complaining and blaming referees and umpires for outcomes of games because in many respects I think its a cop out but home plate umpire CB Bucknor is STEALING at-bats from the Yankees and has terrible strike zone. Unfortunately for the Yankees they aren’t playing well but Bucknor is certainly not helping them. It is just so frustrating when this is an aspect of the game you literally have zero control over. I am not a ‘crying Yankee fan’ either they are not playing well but this isn’t helping them.
The fact that 11 million Americans have lost their job because of this pandemic and CB Bucknor has kept his job is absolutely mind blowing. What a terrible game he is having the fact that Aaron Boone hasn’t been thrown out of this game is amazing because I don’t know if I would be able to have the restrain he is showing. What an awful night all together and CB sucks no if ands or buts around it.
Literally has stolen at least four to five at-bats from the Yankees tonight. The Rays pitching staff is pretty good but they do not need the help of CB to guide them along very frustrating to say the least.
