The World Umpire Association has chimed in, saying it strongly disagrees with the decision to suspend West for a humorous exchange. However, Joe West has long been considered one of the worst umpires in the league, exchanging inappropriate comments with certain teams and getting in public spats with players. What do you think?

Being an umpire is one of the toughest jobs in the world. Anyone would cave to the pressures, but Joe West has been around for 40 seasons. This suspension has gotten a lot of reaction from people who hate Joe West for one reason or another, but it seems to be out of place. 

Even Adrian Beltre, the subject of the offending conversation, said the suspension was unnecessary. Joe West doesn't have the best reputation, but suspending him for a joke is really heavy handed.

It was only a matter of time before Joe West was gonna be suspended. He is one of the worst umpires in the game. It doesn't matter if he got popped for an off-hand comment. The fact he got suspended is good enough. 

Joe West tries to make the game about him, and not the players on the field. He wants all eyes on him, and that kind of selfish behavior is just scratching the surface of how bad West is at his job. There are terrible umpires, and then there's Joe West.

No other umpire would be callous enough to do this unless they wanted attention. We get it, Joe. You exist, and somehow more important than the players. 🙄
