Former MLB pitcher Pedro Martinez cursed out the umpires in Tuesday’s San Francisco Giants-Arizona Diamondbacks game live on the air.
The umpiring in MLB has caused the blood pressure of many fans to rise when watching a game. You even see players in said contests express their opinions on the jobs of the officials. When it comes to former pitcher Pedro Martinez, he has some very explicit thoughts about the umpires.
While on-air for MLB Tonight on Tuesday, Martinez and his colleagues checked in during the San Francisco Giants-Arizona Diamondbacks game. During the contest, Martinez believed that Diamondbacks pitcher Luke Weaver should have been called for a balk. After it was not called, Martinez said the umpires did not know what they were doing. Well, take a listen to what he actually said.
Pedro Martinez thinks Luke Weaver should have been called for a balk
Martinez took issue with Weaver’s “mini windup” in the bottom of the first inning. When the Hall of Fame pitcher was informed that Weaver had never been called for a balk in his career, that is when he dropped the swear word on live television.
Seconds later, Martinez apologized for using the expletive. Let’s just say that it caught many off guard, from his colleagues in the MLB Network studio to those watching from home.
The censors slipped for the second consecutive night. First, ESPN2 for not catching Eli Manning’s double middle fingers. Now, MLB Network not catching Martinez dropping the s-word.
