Plate Umpire Brian Gorman Just Made The Worst Pitch Call Of the Season

July 13, Blue Jays at Red Sox
Top of the 8th inning: Joe Kelly pitching to Justin Smoak

Red Sox catcher Sandy Leon is crossed-up on Kelly's 1-1 pitch. he expects the ball to go to his right, but the changeup stays straight and drills him in the left side as he tries to turn away.

Plate umpire Brian Gorman must have been distracted, too, because he made no call on the pitch (#3). So he felt it was a ball, not in the strike zone.

Is it too much to ask that umpires watch the pitches and not be distracted - and do their fucking jobs?
