The Pirates were on the wrong end of a bad baseball call

After seeing the photo on the front of the Sports section Monday morning (“That Might Sting: After Injury Scare for McCutchen, Dubious Walk-Off Mars Series Finale,” Aug. 4), I think the umpire crew from the Pirates-Diamondbacks game on Sunday should be suspended without pay for the rest of the season.

How could the Diamondbacks’ Nick Ahmed say he was not interfering, when the camera does not lie? His hand is not even going in the direction of the base.

I don’t know how many reviews have been made at second base, but I’m pretty sure you won’t find anyone sliding into second with his hands in the air going to the right of the base.
