We regret to inform you that Joe West is at it again.

The veteran, somehow-still-employed MLB umpire had a brutal call on Friday night that may have changed the outcome of the Blue Jays-Yankees game.

With the Blue Jays leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, Gardner had a 3-1 count, and took a pitch that was clearly ball four. Except to West.

Rather than being rewarded with a walk as the game-tying run, Gardner was given a full count and proceeded to line out. The Yankees lost the game 4-3.

At least the fans in attendance at Yankee Stadium got what they paid to see- The Joe West Show.
