I'm not a pitcher, but I'm not sure about that. Are you suggesting that a pitcher will pitch the same way to Brent Morel as he will to Ryan Howard because the strike zone is the same? I'm not sure I buy that, as they are completely different hitters. By your logic, scouting reports are meaningless, because the strike zone never changes.
