Tigers' Jim Leyland: Umpires' hostility 'getting out of hand'

Jim Leyland believes the increased tension between umpires and teams has become a problem in baseball. 4 people were ejected from their game with the Angels last night without much incident. Given Chipper's comments the other day, and the generally bad umpiring we've seen lately, I think there is definitely something to this. John Kruk weighed in on this topic last night on Phillies/RedSox/Yankees Tonight talking about now is the time we see replacement umpires come up to give some of the regulars a vacation, and they are the one's partially to blame for many of these incidents. He even had a story of his own about a replacement ump Baseball needs to do something to address this growing situation with umpires, or people will be calling for more replay.
