WaPo: Daniel Murphy Asked An Umpire To Move, Got F-Bomb Instead

But Tuesday, Murphy’s ability to play defense diminished greatly when umpire Alan Porter stood in his line of sight early in the game.

Porter did not respond well to a request from Murphy, barking at the player, who appeared to try to reason with him. When the conversation was over, and Murphy could no longer see what Porter was saying, cameras caught the umpire muttering expletives at Murphy.


Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
