Matter of time before somebody gets tossed. Both teams are unhappy about the strike zone.

He's very inconsistent.

But he's consistently inconsistent.

I wonder how many regular umps opted out of the season?  They ever say?

I saw an article that said 11.   Said there were 90 total MLB umps, 11 opted out leaving 79.   They like to have 19 crews because up to 4 might be on vacation at one time, so that's 76.   So they were still over that number but they like to have others in reserve so they were going to have to recruit a few minor league umps to have the # in reserve they wanted.   Of course minor league umps don't have some time on their hands this year.

I just got home so I haven't seen the bad calls.   And Geoff Arnold didn't make too big a deal of them on the radio.   I just heard Garceau said they have got both sides pissed off already.

Shame he and Alyssa broke up.

Didn't she date a few other starting pitchers too?   Barry Zito, maybe one more?

Guess she's got a "type".

Bunch of borderline pitches.

That was a strike but strike 2 WAS NOT.

Man, if only there were something out there that was already installed in every major league stadium that could judge the ending location of every pitch with accuracy better than half the diameter of a baseball.  Then we could employ it to judge the result of pitches at an accuracy percentage that far exceeds a human.

Alas.  Oh well, maybe they'll invent it someday, we can always dream.

Brad Penny I believe was one.

Thing is years ago the smaller Tv’s and lack of HDTV masked some of the missed ball/strike calls. 

When MASN shows the first game at OPACY it was a joke how wide the plate was for Sutcliffe that day.

Thank God for the solid left-field defense of Dwight Smith, Jr.

Can't wait to see the catch probability on that one.
