I wish someone would tell Ben McDonald that the white box on the screen isn't actually the strike zone

It’s not?

Just as I’m thinking,”what a lousy throw” Ben says “what a great play” 

 

Sorry Ben, I don’t see it.

Nope.. it's a static graphic and thus isn't accurate. It doesn't adjust to the height of each individual batter, as the strike zone does. It's stupid and distracting and I wish I never had to see it again.

And I thought my disdain for umpires was totally justified.

Thanks for the info!

It's okay if you're trying to see if a ball was off the plate, but if you want to judge high or low you'll have to use your own two eyes and better judgement.

Better chance of catching Toronto than the Yankees,  because we play them 3 times.   And the Yankees are pounding them tonight.

Basically we have to be within 2 games of the Jays before that series in Buffalo the last weekend, because they have the tiebreak (head to head).  We are 6 back in the loss column starting tonight.   So we have to pick up 4 games on them in the next 10 games to have a shot the final weekend.

So your sayin' there's a chance? :D

It's time for a pay wall so only Plus members get to read @Can_of_corn, @Frobby, @DrungoHazewood and Tony's take!  Perhaps a NYC Gatorade lunch in cosplay with @OFFNY as a freebie.  I am sure that Patrick will buy the bagels!  😎

Are you sure of that, and is that consistent across different broadcasters?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure. Most local broadcasts are doing the same thing.. And this is MASN we're talking about. The national telecasts do it as well. Keep a close eye on it next time... It's completely static from batter to batter.
