Umpires Bumping Managers

It is about a time an umpire be suspended for bumping a manager Jerry Manuel but the suspension Brian Runge got for one day was not fair to all the managers and players who have received longer suspension for the same offense.

Runge clearly egged on the situation by taking his mask off and sweeping off home plate while arguing with Carlos Beltran. There is no doubt the bumping of Beltran was intentional as Runge was shown bumping Manuel on television.

Baseball needs to tell the umpires they are there to control the game and not become part of the problem by physically getting involved in altercations with managers and players.
