While speaking to reporters before last night’s game, second baseman Ian Kinsler criticized umpire Angel Hernandez.
Calling him a bad umpire and saying that Hernandez needs to ‘re-evaluate his career choices’.
Hernandez ejected Kinsler in the 5th inning of Monday night’s loss to taxes, after Kinsler questioned the veteran umpire’s strike zone during a couple of his at-bats.
Currently there is no response from Hernandez on what Kinsler had to say.
