Joe West had this to say on radio:
"I think ya'll gave him a raw deal," West said on 670 The Score in Chicago. "I will tell you this. He retired this week, and he put out a statement. And his statement was that he enjoyed what he did for all these years. And whether you want to believe it or not, he was good at it.

"You can say, well, he missed this pitch or he missed that pitch. But you can do that with anybody. When you get on a rant like that, it's easy to follow a guy and say, 'Oh, he missed this pitch."

Whether or not it is a friend is coming to his defense, there is no argument about how bad Angel Hernandez was in accuracy of calls, we wish him a sweet retirement!
