April 26 vs Blue Jays
Matusz: 5 squeezes, 4 gifts (-1)
Hutchison: 2 squeezes, 4 gifts (+2)
Game score: -3. Pretty average game with a slight Blue Jays bias.
Edit: All of the gifts were on the outside corner, for both pitchers.

I admit I didn't read this whole thread, but I wanted to mention something that I posted in the game thread. It seems to me that some of the umpires that get "low" into stances behind the place often have worse strike zones due to the angle that they're viewing from. Tonight's ump got low behind the catcher's left shoulder and he was calling more strikes to that side of the plate (and several inches off that side of the plate, in to righties and away to lefties). Meanwhile, he was calling a lot of balls to the other side of the plate, possibly because it's harder to see across the plate, with the angle as well as the catcher being in the way.
Not sure if this is something that's been brought up or could be examined in any way....
