Anthony Rizzo, for the most part, has been an honest man throughout his MLB career. That was no different this week. Every Tuesday, the Chicago Cubs star goes on “Kap and J-Hood“, the 7 AM morning show on ESPN 1000. It is always great to get updates on things surrounding the team from someone who would know better than everyone. He made some comments that might make people think twice when they rip on umpire Joe West.
Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs clearly has some respect for Joe West.
Earlier in the week, Joe West was in town to umpire a series between the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals. In that series, he broke the MLB’s record for the most games umpired with 5,376 games. It is an amazing accomplishment for anyone to be involved with anything for that long.
