Angel Hernandez Is Ruining World Baseball Classic Games Now
It's almost time for Major League Baseball to return, so you know what that means: repeated reminders that Angel Hernandez is the worst umpire the sport has to offer. But this year, Hernandez is branching out. Yes, he's umping in the World Baseball Classic and he was in midseason form on Tuesday.
