Hero umpire helps prevent woman from jumping off bridge before working Pirates-Rays game

Major League Baseball umpires have one of the toughest jobs in the sport. They never have a home game, and no fans come to the stadium to cheer them on. Maybe that should change, thanks an umpire like John Tumpane.

Tumpane was in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, in town to work the series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays. He spotted a woman climbing over the railing on the Roberto Clemente Bridge near PNC Park.

Zack Hess spelled Lange in the eighth, and he needed just 23 pitches to work his way out of the last five outs. The big boy pitcher currently sports the Wild Thing haircut shave from the Major League franchise on the back of his head, and he dealt absolute heat to strike out the day’s final batter.

That’s a big time celebration for the hurler, and synecdoche for LSU on a grander scale, insofar as they were crushed by 12 runs just days previous. Skipper Paul Mainieri was asked about Hess’ personality after the big win, and, well:

The Tigers and Beavers will meet to decide one of the College World Series’ final two teams on Saturday, time to be announced.

Zack Hess has kindly agreed via tweet not to strangle his day’s starter after such a masterful performance despite Lange calling him gross on Twitter what with Lange holding the Beavs down to just one run in the victory. Thank you, Zack Wild Thing Hess, you’re the best.

Dear Lange, Great job today on the 30th Win. And thank you for the compliment. Now I won’t strangle you in your sleep. With love, Hess ??

The White Sox are a half-game out. Should they have kept Chris Sale and Adam Eaton?

In November, I descended down the rocky slopes of Mt. Take with stone tablets, and I announced to the world that The White Sox Should Think Hard Before Trading Chris Sale. The reasoning went something like this: Sale is excellent, cheap, and excellent. He’s a fine head start on a would-be contender, especially one that has players like Jose Quintana, Adam Eaton, and Jose Abreu. Maybe there was a way to patch the team’s holes and give it one last go.

Basically the same thing as the scenario above, but with more deals peppered in. Maybe the Hawks find an affordable player who is a good fit that they decide is worth trading a guy like Schmaltz, Forsling, or Ville Pokka. Maybe trades for restricted free agents Richard Panik, Michal Kempny, and Tomas Jurco lead to getting something interesting in return.

It’d be pretty much the same thing as staying the course, but Victor Cruz Cheap Jerseys with enough changes on the fringes that the team’s depth would look meaningfully different next season. The core, however, would remain intact.

This one takes the changes a bit further. Instead of simply trading Kruger to clear enough breathing room to stay above water, the Hawks go for bigger changes that allow them to supplement the core in a different way than before. This would require trading Niklas Hjalmarsson, one of the only highly paid players without a complete no-trade clause, to make it happen.
