Umpire Suspended For Actions Regarding Mets

Brian Runge has been suspended for one game by Major League Baseball for his actions on Tuesday night at Shea Stadium. I’m thrilled to see MLB take action like this with an umpire that was clearly looking for a fight. His aggressive actions (chest bumping Jerry Manuel) turned a docile situation into a combustible scenario that’s embarrassing to MLB.

Jerry Manuel and Carlos Beltran, who were both ejected by Runge, have received undisclosed fines.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
