Not that the quality of the punch should really matter when it comes to Offerman’s suspension, but it sure seems like the umpire took a dive.

    Yeah, Jose missed. Still inexcusable, but the ump’s face didn’t even move after the punch had gone by.

    The umpire took a dive to avoid the next round of punches that were coming from that nut job. Inexcusable. The DR Winter League did the right thing. Offerman is an idiot and does not belong in the game.

    The ump is a big Sonny Liston fan.
