I can live with umpires making mistakes, but there was absolutely no excuse for Bob Davidson to overturn a correct call on Carlos Delgado's fourth inning home run. Moreover, the discussion didn't even last that long.
The only explanation in my mind was an incompetent group of umpires making a horrible call to appease the home fans. If you or I performed as poorly at our jobs there would be consequences. There will certainly be none for these spineless individuals, and that's too bad. They should be very thankful that the Yankees didn't win this game.
Kudos to Jerry Manuel for being so passionate and getting tossed from the game. Willie should pay whatever fine he gets, since Manuel was doing what Randolph failed to do. Actually, I'd like to see Bob Davidson assessed the same fine as Manuel, since it was his gross incompetence that initiated everything.
