CC Sabathia was critical of home plate umpire Angel Hernandez after the New York Yankees' season-ending loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
The left-hander said Hernandez, who had several calls reviewed and overturned at first base in Game 3 the previous day, was "terrible."
"He's absolutely terrible," Sabathia said. "He was terrible behind the plate today. He was terrible at first base. It's amazing how he's getting jobs umpiring in these playoff games."
Asked if Hernandez was the reason the Yankees lost, Sabathia added: "Not at all. But he shouldn't be around these playoff games."
"He's always bad," Sabathia said. "He's a bad umpire."
