Hey ESPN, This Is Why You Don’t Mic Umpires

During last night’s 16 inning Red Sox/Rays pitcher’s duel, home plate umpire Chad Fairchild got hit in the mask with a David Ortiz swing. Which led to something I always love: cursing on ESPN. That said, I’m impressed with Fairchild. I definitely would have said worse had Big Papi hit me in the face with a baseball bat.
