#automatethestrikezone   I don't spend money and time to watch these home plate umpires influence the game with their strike zone "preferences".

Not a great beginning to Roark’s start tonight. Not getting a few pitches he needs to get for success. 

 

Edit: tack on a base loaded run on a wild pitch. Severino is a horrible catcher

Couldn't agree more.  I didn't watch much of the Angel's ABs, so I can't comment on Morton, but Ohtani was making some amazing pitches that were getting called balls. One could say to sell him right now after walking 5, but one has to wonder how the game would have went with an umpire behind the plate that knew how to call a game.

Well he got that call to K Longo.

Threw the same pitch to Belt twice. Both balls. 

 

Belt is left handed.  Angel Hernandez wasn’t giving inside corners.

Regarding the automated strike zone, what qualifies as a strike? Painting the edge? Fully in the zone? Half the ball? Not bashing the idea, just curious what the proposal has been. 

 

If it clips part of the zone it should be a strike imo.

I agree - the moment before the ball is caught did it touch the K zone or not. 

 

This would be 100% verifiable using the tech at hand and would ensure 100% certainty as to what is a strike or not. 

 

The solution is too simple to believe it would ever be implemented.

I think it should be when it passes through the zone, ie when the hitter is swinging at it.

Wow he’s on fire right now.

 

Yeah he goes through these streaks sometimes where he is just locked in.  It’s a lot of fun to watch considering there are also times where it just feels like he Ks every at bat.

I LOVED Tanner Roark last year. He looks so much like the 2016 version again. I have Roark as approaching top 30 SP status. 

 

@taobball could you expand on what you like about Roark? I think he could be had cheap and now might a good time to acquire before he gets a lot of love.

Can't say I'm a fan of Manfred's new approaches, but this does sound pretty exciting. 

 

Oops.  Talking NFL draft with someone else while posting.  Wires got crossed.
