Bmr, you always agree with the umps. Live a little! No offense, but if the ump is wrong you have to point it out. Mostly MLB will do that to make them change things if necessary though. That time Canseco was out, but I wouldn't be thinking 'the ump is always right' all the time like you do.

If Magilla Gorilla would have gotten down and slid this conversation would be unneccasary.

umps are fast becoming obsolete. The technology exists to accurately call balls and strikes by remote sensor, tailored to each hitter's strike zone. All baserunning plays, line drive traps, check swings, etc. are well-defined by multiple camera angles (whereas umps have only one--or at most two, when a second ump's onion is asked). I can't believe application of this technology would slow down the game any further.

i've felt that for years but even tho it's feasible i don't think it'll happen anytime soon. for one thing the umps would fight it very hard. an ump would have to stand there anyway for tipped pitches checked swings, stuff like that. i doubt it'll ever go totally electronic.
also the sides of the plate is easy but how would you determine high and low? have a batter stand there while someone adjusts it while in his batting position? would the home team have the advantage because it's their equipment?
there seem to be a lot of problems with the idea.

i agree with the truth and not crying and whining and bitching. He was out.

I can't tell you how much it pains me to agree with BMR. He was out. He used to be a base stealer; did he forget how to slide?

I would have to say yes. It looked like the thought never crossed his mind.

Appears that way. BTW i thought he said he could still run a 4.3 40? By watching him on the base paths he is lucky if heis breaking 5.3.

He can still do 4.3-4.4 in the 40. It looked like rounded third on April 3rd and got to home on April 4th.
