Here I am sitting at home on a rainy Memorial Day and I put on the Cubs V Astros game on ESPN. There was a ground out to first and I saw it, an Umpire wearing jeans while calling the action. Was it casual day out at Wrigley? Did i miss something here because I thought they always had to wear special attire. Am I the only one who noticed this?

This could be one of those situations where the umpires gear did not get to the next city in time. But usually they wind up wearing some apparaell from the home team.



"If we will keep closing our eyes to evil, then that evil will defeat us tomorrow. Unfortunately there's more hatred in men than love. Those who murder understand only force and nothing else. And the only force that is able to stand against them is the American democracy."- Marek Edelman, last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

"The Geneva Conventions are so outdated and are written so broadly that they have become a sword used by terrorists to kill civilians, rather than a shield to protect civilians from terrorists. These international laws have become part of the problem, rather than part of the solution."- Alan Dershowitz

Yep, the plane with their gear was late due to weather, so the men in blue got to ump in style. Why they don't let them just go out in their boxers I do not know.

This wasn't as fun as the time in Atlanta where the gear managed to get lost and the umps, as Grimis alluded to, got to wear Braves gear from the team shop. You'd think the club could find something for them to wear other than a navy cap with the script "A" on it, but noooooo.

And you thought the Braves pitchers got an enlarged strike zone BEFORE...



I expect you fans, you people here in LA to do what you do best. RIOT!

Wouldn't be optimal, but didn't J.D. Drew play CF? If Tacoby Ellsbury doesn't light things up, the Red Sox could just do that...
