Will he get just get fined a few grand per F-bomb or will he have to sit out for a game or three over that?

Maybe don't give up 2 runs in the 9th on ZERO hits?

edmo: Th umps seem terrible this year


It's on everyone's radar so the video clips are plentiful, I don't think they are any worse or better than any year really. Some umps set a strike zone and stick with it, sometimes it's a little wide, sometimes a little high. Also, the box on the TV screen is a good guide for viewers, but the plate is 3D and thus the zone can't always be represented with a 2D position, sometimes something low or outside on the grid, may not have been when it crossed the plane of the front of the plate and would correctly be called a strike.

It's one reason that robot umps haven't arrived yet, the tech is there, but also misses sometimes. The zone changes per batter as well, especially the height of the zone - depending on stance and player height.

Balls and strikes robot? I have no problem with that.

Baseball is dying and it should try something innovative.

So you are saying if a batter sat on his butt, he would have zero strike zone?

Robots would have no issue with it, all you need to do is bother IT to retrain a strike zone to each player profile after their physical.

It's not like he called the ump a fat pig and told him to have another donut.

A player's height doesn't change, though, so all that needs to happen is to "scan" the player once at the beginning of the season, feed that info into the MLB computer, and give them their own unique zone for the entire season.

The only reason they don't do that is because they don't want to.  Baseball likes the so-called "human element" of the game.

it's gotten to where half the attention the game gets before the playoffs is related to how bad the umpires are.

in the playoffs it's more.

which is so farking stupid, because the game is played, managed, and coached by humans. pretty sure the human element isn't going anywhere

Great movie and great scene. I love the line "Ok, let's get two!"

As mentioned, this is way more complex than you think. 

Players and the ball do not have sensors, the flight path is determined by multiple camera angles. As each batter has their own stance, which changes the zone (and changes between pitches some times) and makes it harder to model. There is also no overhead camera, making positioning even more difficult.

Everybody can see the ball was very low, and the catcher janked his glove up higher to make it look like a strike. They do that all the time and everybody in the stadium sees that except the umpires. Pathetic.

These guys make hockey refs look halfway competent (but no more than that).
