Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon thinks umpire should be demoted
Philadelphia Phillies CL Jonathan Papelbon gave up the game-winning hit Monday, June 4, after he thought he had the batter struck out. Papelbon talked to umpire D.J. Reyburn after the inning. "I wanted to know If he could throw me out for what I was thinking," Papelbon said. "And if he could, then I thought he sucked. It's that simple." After suggesting that Reyburn should be demoted to Triple-A, Papelbon insisted: "That's not a knock on him. That's not a knock on the umpires. You're up in the big leagues for a reason - to do a good job. When you don't do a good job, you should be demoted or fired… There's no room for that up here."
