Bill Hall is pissed

Ooooh, Bill Hall is pissed. After getting tossed in the 7th inning, he had a lot to say. Here's an excerpt - click the link for the whole thing:

It’s amazing how umpires can get away with so much stuff and nothing happens to them. It’s all about them trying to get something on ESPN punching someone out or getting their spot on ESPN. I have no idea. It’s getting ridiculous. It’s gotten worse over the last few years, and hopefully somehow some way it can be calmed down a little bit because it’s a little out of hand.

The umpire in question was Tom Hallion. Hallion has a, ahem, definitive style in which he twists his body around 180 degrees on a third strike call.
