No one can deny that Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez(notes) is one of the game's elite players. Umpires still rule baseball, however, as man in blue Rob Drake demonstrates in a recent confrontation with HanRam at home plate. Ramirez was trying to score on a wild pitch (video here) against the Rockies, with whom the Fish and others are sparring for a playoff spot.

HM — ipphoto. "Man, I can't believe I get paid this much to stare at balls!"
