Nationals-White Sox game delayed because umpires were stuck in traffic

Big League Stew

Umpires, they're not having the greatest week. Days after totally blowing a game-ending third-strike call against the Tampa Bay Rays, another set of umpires caused a 15-minute delay in Wednesday's Washington Nationals/Chicago White Sox game because they were stuck in traffic.

Seriously.

Imagine the next manager who tries to chew these umps out. "At least I can get to the game on time." Even funnier is that this comes a day after Washington Nationals outfielder Denard Span complained about traffic in D.C.

See, he's right. Let's not forget: this spring Zack Greinke said he considered helicoptering to games at Dodger Stadium because of traffic.

Obviously we know what should happen now. Bud Selig needs to buy everybody helicopters.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
