Ok, .... please read carefully and hear me out ....
I'm a HS umpire and that's all I'll ever be, partly because that's what I enjoy and that's my inspiration. I don't have the time or schedule to do College ball, so what I do I'm perfectly happy with. And, to add .... I do a decent job.
Now, ... I'll NEVER be at the level of the guys on the field right now, and 99.9999999% of all of us on the site won't either, however. IF I ever got to do a game at the level of a plate in the world series, I certainly wouldn't have my hands in my pockets most of the night. I feel Guccione did a fine job last night, no doubt, and he probably accomplished a dream last night by doing his first World Series plate job. But, did anyone else notice this? I know it was pretty 'raw' in Cleveland last night but would gloves be a good alternative? I just think the hands in pockets thing looks as if you don't care.
Am I off base here, or was this noticed by anyone else?
Again, I'm not bashing Guccione per-say, but how does that 'look' to others? Make sense?
I posted something similar on Facebook and you'd think that I called Guccione's mother a nasty name! Geez
