In the two games at Yankee Stadium, the home team was outscored 20-4 and failed to hit a home run despite crushing an MLB-record 267 during the regular season. This did not appear to please Sabathia, who had a notable run-in with Hernandez back in April when he yelled at the umpire to "call f--ing strikes".
No need to explain Chris Sale getting the ball in Game 1. "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today".
The career Major League Baseball umpire was stationed behind the plate for Tuesday's ALDS Game 4, just one day after he had three close calls at first base overturned in. "He's always bad. He's a bad umpire".
Despite his criticism, Sabathia did make it clear that he didn't think Hernandez was the difference in Tuesday's game, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey. We just got to continue to improve on the margins in every facet. It's awesome how he's getting a job to umpire in these playoff games.
Barkley returns for England, ready to live up to hopes
We won the European Championship that year and there's no better feeling than winning something with your country. We have added a lot of youth to the squad, we are all developing from a young age, developing into big players.
In possibly his final start of a 10-year run with the Yankees, Sabathia allowed three runs on five hits in three innings.
Since the filing, Hernandez has been chosen to work the 2017 All-Star Game and games in each of the last two postseasons.
