Fangraphs: The Size of the Strike Zone by Count

Thanks for posting!

I have always thought that the strike zone is egregiously large on 3-0 counts, glad to see some research on it. It's always so frustrating to see a hitter draw a 3-0 count, only for the pitcher to weasel his way back in because the umpire just expects him to pump in a strike on 3-0 and calls a strike six inches outside.

I am actually bothered more by the opposite. When the pitcher throws a couple quick strikes to get ahead and all of a sudden the zone shrinks and it is a 2-2 count.
