But could QuesTec, the computerized camera system peering over the shoulders of umpires this season, be such a cruel and insidious force in the game that it has undermined the Twins' division title defense?

The thing I find most interesting about this article is that QuesTec is NOT used at the Metrodome.

Radke says: "...but I think more umpires are trying to call the strike, instead of calling a ball that's a hair off (the plate) a strike.''

That's because it IS a ball, Brad...

Buncha crybabies. I'm glad they're finally calling a real strike zone. The most infuriating thing to me was when guys like Maddux and Glavine would get those strikes six inches off the plate.

I guess the Twins pitchers can't accept the fact that they stink :whiner:
