I thought we’d shed some light on why Jim Joyce was left off our poll on worst umpires of 2012. To make it quite simple, he saved a woman’s life on August 20th before a game between the Marlins and Diamondbacks at Chase Field. It is for this reason we felt it necessary to exclude him from our poll.
Lest we forget the blown call on the last out of Armando Galarraga’s perfect game but for the time being, Joyce deserves a free pass.
