Awful Umpiring - Part 2

After watching Joe West do a great imitation of the Federal Government - bloated, impervious and mistaken - I have a suggestion for an additional piece of equipment for managers to have in the dugout.

A protractor. Not to be impaled on Mr West [tempting, but wrong], but rather to prove mathematically that a line drive that lands just inches foul about 10 yards past the third base bag and continues into foul ground against the stands coming off the bat of a right-handed hitter cannot have been foul when it went past the third base bag.
