...and this is why they want robots to be umpires.

Yeah, that call probably cost me $20. Had the under.

Good news:  You'll get your robot umpires.

Bad news:  They'll be trained on Angel Hernandez' calls.

I still do

Or the substance abuse games- let them openly juice beyond any reasonable limit (more than they do now even) and let's see what a bunch of chemically maxed out superhumans can do - if they don't kill each other in a roid rage frenzy (which would also be fun to watch)

Anything to cut down on the three hours of existential dread that is watching a baseball game.

One strike and you out, I say.  Who's with me?

Sounds like the baseball version of NFL Blitz we all honestly need at this point in our lives.

Could have been worse, it could be CB Bucknor, although he would need an AI that made itself to be the center of every game and would randomly throw out players and managers.

Or - Eric Greeeegggg

I never understood baseball until I realized it's a great game for people who are learning to count.

WE. NEED. ROBOTS.

Before clicking the link, my thought was it's either Hernandez, Bucknor, or Diaz. Glad I wasn't disappointed.
