Things did not go well for MLB umpire Doug Eddings during Tuesday’s Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays game.

How bad?

Well, Eddings blew 26 ball and strike calls during the game. Yes, 26!

In case you missed it, here are just some of the brutal calls from Eddings.

Eddings scorecard via Umpire Scorecards shows how bad it was for him.

And, well, here’s one inexcusable call. Really, this can’t be explained.

The reactions came pouring in.

Eddings might want to block everybody from his phone, email, and social media. Really anything of that nature.

It was that bad.

This was, to be frank, one of the worst umpiring jobs in MLB history and easily the worst in recent memory. As others said, Angel Hernandez would be proud.

The robot ump conversation once again came back, and we saw this already when Hunter Wendelstedt threw out some terrible calls — although Eddings performance is much, much worse.

Umpiring is not an easy job, but missing that many calls in one game is simply inexcusable. Let’s see when — or if — Doug Eddings returns to the diamond.
