Ump Show: Laz Diaz yells at Cubs bench after tough strike call (Video)

Cubs: MLB umpires have been at their worst in 2021, it appears.
Ideally, umpires would never sidetrack from a matchup in between 2 of the best groups in the National League. Hence, the days of the modern umpire arent great for baseball itself.
The Cubs are on a tear, holding an unexpected lead in the NL Central over the favored St. Louis Cardinals. The Giants, meanwhile, remain in a comparable boat, holding back the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres in the NL West.
Ideally, Diaz can prevent conflict moving on. The game isnt about him.

In the top of the 5th inning, Giants pitcher Anthony DeSclafani got a generous strike call from Diaz with opposing pitcher Zach Davies at the plate. While the pitch did appear like a strike per the zone on live broadcast, it was the culmination of a handfull of questionable calls that all went against the Cubs.
Chicago had been unhappy with Diaz all night, and eventually he d had enough of the jeering.

MLB umpire Laz Diaz made it a point to call out the Chicago Cubs bench after a hard strike call.
Having Diaz and CB Bucknor on the exact same team seems like overkill from MLBs part, but we want the Cubs and Giants the best in what must be anything however a regular series by the Bay.
