    Ump Joe West Sues Ex-Catcher Paul Lo Duca & Wins $500k Defamation Case

    Lo Duca claimed he bribed West for a favorable strike zone by letting him borrow his 1957 Chevrolet.

    Joe West thought he wouldn't make the MLB Hall of Fame like Shoeless Joe Jackson, Barry Bonds and Pete Rose if the voters thought it was true.

    Can't make this shit up.

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/...r-paul-lo-duca

    ...West's suit claimed Lo Duca said during the podcast that when the player was catching Billy Wagner during a New York Mets game against the Philadelphia Phillies in 2006 or 2007, West called three straight batters out on strikes. The umpire added that Lo Duca claimed Wagner told him the reason he got the calls was the pitcher had allowed West to drive his 1957 Chevy...
    "The court credits the plaintiff's testimony that one's integrity and character are primary measures that are applied to the assessment of an umpire's or player's quality and, thus, the consideration that he will be given for election to, and induction into, the Hall of Fame,"

    Yeah, the games and podcast are old and Lo Duca might have been a no show last year but I think the award was just announced yesterday.

    I suppose $500k makes up the potential to not get into the Hall of Fame, even though he already won the suit.

    Strange how the judge agreed about the Hall of Fame potential and then they put a dollar amount on that, as the defamation.
