Homeplate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt (pictured, right) has committed the unforgivable sin of ejecting Master of 'Tism Manny Acta in today's game. This after he ejected sweet, innocent first-time starter John Lannan for merely doing what countless others of us have dreamed of (admit it): plunking two Philadelphia players.
The motives of this rogue umpire may never be known, as he will doubtless keep such things buried in the depths of his blackened Grinch-like heart. However, Capitol Punishment presents a completely plausible theory for Wendelstedt's utterly insane overreation. We now only wait for MLB to do the right thing and can this blight on the game.
