10:33 AM ET 05.21 | Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says he is not under investigation for verbally confronting umpires underneath the stands following a controversial call. Rizzo said he contacted Joe Torre, Major League Baseball's vice president of operations, immediately after Thursday's game in New York, which concluded with players and staff on the Nationals bench jawing at the departing umpires following a crucial ninth-inning call that went against them.

the umpires will continue making the wrong calls regardless their inability to take responsability for all their mistakes!!!

The umpires are very terrible ... they can't call a decent strike much less see a play as it happens ... that being said ... it happens to every team and I have no desire to see the game go to instant replay for every strike and ball ...
