If you haven’t heard by now, Los Angeles Dodgers fans aren’t too happy with home plate umpire Dale Scott’s calls at last night’s NLDS Game Three versus the St. Louis Cardinals.
Aside from a seemingly generous strike zone, Scott also appeared to clap when Yasiel Puig was struck out during the third inning.
Here’s 10 reactions to Dodgers-Cardinals home plate umpire Dale Scott:
Dale Scott called the ceremonial first pitch a strike.—

5. Matt Kemp is not amused.
6. Then people really weren’t impressed…
MLB probably gonna fine Matt Kemp for being critical of umpires, but Dale Scott is the one that should be punished.—

7. Things just got real.
@Mlb Umpire Dale Scott needs to be removed from the playoffs, most inconsistent ball and strike calls I've ever seen—

8. Cemented with stats.
Dale Scott, the ump for STL-LA, had a correct call % of 83.7 on the 256 pitches thrown. Missing on 42 pitches in the playoffs seems bad @MLB—

9. Something all Dodgers fans want.
At least Dale Scott isn't behind the plate today—
