Nothing gets white people pissed off like an umpire blowing a call, especially when the call goes in the favor of the Yankees. It also doesn’t help when the Yankees win 10-4.

Longtime Twins broadcaster Dick Bremer said as much during the Fox Sports North telecast of the game. Morneau and Blaser exchanged some words before Minnesota skipper Ron Gardenhire took up the argument for his player.
In other news this morning, ESPN fired another intern or two.
