Paul Schrieber is a miserable sack of horse excrement

Home plate ump Paul Schrieber, he of the game ending balk fame, just tossed Guzman for arguing balls and strikes.

That's his right. But immediately after tossing him, he waved "bye-bye" to Guzman in a smug, priggish fashion.

Say anything you want about how he calls the games (which I have) but an umpire displaying that kind of attitude is disgraceful.

I'm surprised he didn't smack Guzman and then demand some more peanuts.

It's 3-2 Nats in the bottom of the sixth.

Damn radio feed went to commercial during all of that. I didn't even know he did that to Guzman. He's a POS of the first order. He caught hell from both teams on his plate calls today. I don't think he knows what he's doing. I hope the Nats take it to the league. That kind of behavior, and bad calls are unexcusable at that level.

I hate being out of market. And I'm too cheap to buy the package on Comcast.

As a Bucs fan in the NFL, I have years of experience hating officials because they;re bad calls screw us. I was hoping becoming a Nats fan would spare me that fun again. Two in two days is insane. This guy needs to go.

I'm not even that pissed about his calls right now. (which were crap, of course) That shit he pulled on Guzman, waving bye bye, that's top-notch a--hole behavior.

Not just waving bye, but that smug ass smirk on his face, and the things that the most basic lip reading skills suggest that he said to Guzman was absolutely unacceptable. I believe I saw the intensly confrontational "WHAT?!?"
as he threw off his mask and a "F*** off" when Guzman showed his disagreement with the call. For this plus the ludicrous balk call Schrieber deserves to be stripped of his umpire threads and for baseball to wave goodbye to him.

Yea, this guy is a joke. he just threw out the cards catcher and manager on arguing balls/strikes. Molina said something on an obvious strike and then went back to playin. when the same thing happened again molina said something again and then got thrown. the argument ensued to let larussa get tossed. Heres the kicker...after he had already thrown out both of 'em, molina went to the dugout and tony was talking (read, not yelling) and asking the piece of shit questions and he wouldn't even look tony in the eyes...and knowing that he waved and smirked last time, it was fairly obvious he was thinking along the same lines, although no physical gesture was made.
