Hernandez, who has been working the majors for about a quarter of a century, was called out by Detroit Tigers’ second baseman Ian Kinsler following his ejection on Monday night. Kinsler suggested that Hernandez re-evaluate his career choice and find a new job because he is a bad umpire who is “messing” with games “blatantly.”

On Tuesday Hernandez worked third base and with a normal rotation it would put him at second on Wednesday night when the Tigers play the third game of the series against the Texas Rangers.

Kinsler was not surprised by how quickly he was ejected in the series opener but was “surprised at how bad an umpire he is.”

This isn’t the first time Hernandez has been in the news this year. Earlier this season he sued MLB over alleged racial discrimination for not being promoted to crew chief and the lack of World Series assignments in the past decade by MLB chief official Joe Torre. The long-time umpire says it is because Torre holds animosity towards him from the time Torre was the manager of the Yankees.

Back in 2001, Torre said of that Hernandez “seems to see something nobody else does” and “I think he just wanted to be noticed over there.”

Any time you see Hernandez on the field you are certain that something will happen and there will be a confrontation with a player or manager. It’s one thing to miss a bang bang play and have video review overturn the call but to blatantly miss routine calls including a strike right down the middle of the plate at belt level shows he has no clue what he is doing out there.

ESPN did a survey in 2010 where 22 percent of players asked called Hernandez the worst umpire in the majors.

It’s time to show Mr. Hernandez the door and overhaul umpiring all together to make it better for them, managers and the players.
