There's no reason not to automate the strike zone.

 

We have the technology.

The people that actually have the eyesight to accurately call balls and strikes on nearly EVERY pitch are either in the batters box or flying fighter planes.  And even they wouldn't get it correct 100% of the time. 

 

Instead we get fallable humans impacting the outcome of the game that they are only supposed to officiate every night with their bias and ineptitude.  Every freaking inning I see an ump impact an at bat by screwing up a strike or ball call.   It's ridiculous.

 

 

 

Couldn't agree more. It would be a pretty easy implementation. The umpire could still stay behind the plate and make the calls, just after the calls are given too him. Could be a little device that vibrates for a strike, would very easy. It would also help speed up the game to eliminate some of the conversations, stare downs, or inevitable arguments the umpires create with a missed call.

Ken Giles in the game in a 0-0 tie at home. First pitch is a Villanueva double.

Donaldson's arms look tiny. Has he always been slender? Always thought he was a bit more built?

 

Nope. He's got bowling balls for calves, but tiny arms.

Does anyone know where you go to download the MLB.TV app for mac osx? MLB has removed their download center this year and every page i go to doesn't have a way to download it.

Can someone explain to me why Jake Thompson of the Phillies is being credited with a save? The game was a complete blowout by the time he came in.

Cutch literally put the entire SF team on his shoulders this game.  Pretty cool to see.

Anyone know why Blackmon was taken out of the game? Also why the hell was he bunting with 2 men on base?

I've literally never seen that happen in the 7 years I've been playing fantasy baseball.

Did he throw 3 innings?  They get a save if they pitch 3 innings and the team wins. (unless they're the pitcher getting the win)

Are you able to find the MLB At Bat app?  For some reason on Fire TV it is no longer the MLB TV app its just called MLB At Bat now, like on mobile.
