Yep, about time:

 

From the WaPo

Save for pronounced consternation over one pitch, a tailing fastball that rung up Lancaster Barnstormers designated hitter Joe Terdoslavich in the second inning, the digitally rendered strike zone was barely noticeable. As Terdoslavich discussed the markedly low pitch with deBrauwere, the umpire pointed to his earpiece.

 

“It’s uncharted territory,” said deBrauwere, who told reporters he would have called the pitch a ball. “I just want these guys to know that’s what the system called.

“I understand why it’s a strike. The top of the ball shaved the bottom of the strike zone. But it would be almost impossible to be consistent with [that pitch without Trackman] because it’s at the bottom of the zone, but also because catcher’s influence is real.”

“If that was the one blunder,” Terdoslavich said, “I didn’t really hear any complaints from anyone.”

 

If this eliminates pitch framing, and all that bs, I am all for it.

That’s what we want fixed. 

so it wasn't a mistake. It was a pitch that was a strike that doesn't get called a strike.   Again, if we eliminate bs pitch framing, that is a good thing.

And boom goes the dynamite.

How many mistakes are OK?  How many do umps get wrong?  If were going to go to this it cant have these kids of mistakes.
Im sorry i dont back this at all for pitch to pitch, only for appeals.  Yes, i know you currently cant, you should be able to using this.

A hell of a lot more than 1 per game.

The first 15 minutes of that movie were awesome. The rest of it, not so much.

Mostly agree. However, there was about a 7 second clip in one of the fight scenes where a Marine LAV-25, known to the Iraqi Insurgency as "the great destroyers" is seen in the background.

So we will call it 5 minutes 7 seconds of that movie.

(Plus the other 3 second clips where the tripods blow their air horns).

Also, I think I remember tom cruise wearing a red sox hat in it. And he had to flee his boston home because the aliens killed everyone there. So i also enjoyed that aspect. Makes it more "film" than "movie"

Jesus Christ. One borderline call on the first use and some of you are ready to ditch it. 

Personally I thought it was low, others disagree with me.  Sure the catcher did him no favors, but my take is it was below the bottom of the knee and I don’t think I have ever seen that called a strike in the majors, granted I have only been watching for 40 years, so it is possible it has been called a strike before.  I am also not ignoring that my opinion is somewhat based on perception and the catcher catching the ball the way he did.  Just looked low and different.  

I also saw a pitch trax which was the exact opposite of this one where there were three bottom of the zone calls that were all borderline called balls.  I will find it and post it.

Here are some of the worst calls of the first half.

But look at the catcher framing so well, so it's all good.

 

 

those are awesome!!!

I would recommend browsing the vids posted by umpire auditor.  90+% are pitches off the plate called a strike.

The Umpires own words.

Understand that even the umpire admits the computer was right and he would have called it wrong. It wasn't a blunder or mistake. The ball entered the strike zone.

What else needs to be said about this?
