From the Trib:

umpires are being told to call more strikes high in the zone as well as to become more consistent on the outside corner.

Anyone think they'll do it?

They claimed that they were going to call the high strike, last year. As you said, it didn't last long.

I remember once when Dave Martiinez was brought in to pitch an inning for the Sox, back in the day.
