Umpire Chris Guccione - Dick

I just posted about how umpires are disgracing themselves and the game with their behavior. Chris Guccione has taken it to a new level.

Throughout the game David Wells thought he was getting squeezed by the homeplate umpire (not Guccione). After getting squeezed again, Wells gave up a hit and then he waved his hands in digust and started yelling. The homeplate umpire yelled back, and apparantly told Wells to stop. Both men then wisely turned around and walked away to diffuse the situation.

Here's where Guccione decided to get himself on SportCenter. As Wells and the homeplate umpire were calming down, Guccione comes in from second base to throw Wells out. Before Wells can even look at Guccione, this showboater is already yelling at Wells hoping to start a big argument.

Needless to say, Guccione needs to be fired.

You were right Patriotsy2k. The answer to guess the athlete is Derrick Lee.
