They'll basically be going from one judgement call to another and that will create just as much controversey. Maybe they'll decide to work it like we did as kids and have a "do over". We all know the biggest difference makers in the game are the ball and strike decisions but I don't want electronic umpires. We've lived with human error for 100+ years in this game and we can keep on living with it. I'm getting a bit tired of this sport trying to mimic what they do in football. It's a different game.
