CubsHQ Mailbag: Umpire accountability, the electronic strike zone, setup-man options

I was livid when they first started touting the electronic zone, as “human error” was always the wildcard factor in baseball, but some of these calls are getting crazy.

To be honest. If you take away stat cast strike zone . There's nothing to say here. I agree. The umps blow alot of calls , (obvious ones). They are judgment calls and it should stay that way. The replay needs to go as well. Let baseball be baseball. Its turning into a life size video game. DUMB.

Not sure what people would argue about if we didn't have umps making so many bad calls. People would lose their minds in boredom.

Are you saying that you watch baseball because of the umpires?

no...I'm saying some people need something to complain about while watching the game to keep them interested.

Meaning there’s no umpire calls to argue about. And most games are dang well called. The average guy couldn’t do what these umpires do when there are bang bang plays. I salute the umpires of today. Most aren’t gambling on the game unlike basketball refs. They’re decent people trying to make a living.
