______________________________________
This one's about the best and worst umpires, at least with regards to calling the MLB strike zone. Umpire Angel Hernandez is probably the most infamous at the moment, but do you know Pat Hoberg? John Libka? Alan Porter? They're gonna be umpiring the strike zone for a lot longer than Angel Hernandez, Laz Diaz, or CB Bucknor.

In this episode of Baseball Bits, a Foolish Baseball production, there will be plenty of time to look at some MLB worst calls and MLB best calls, especially with regards to the MLB strike zone. But we'll also dig deeper on the subject of Robo-umps, the Automated Ball Strike System that may soon replace human strike zone callers.

UmpScoreCards is a fairly new, public-facing way to grade umpires, and we'll be leaning on their work heavily to find the truth. Does MLB have an umpire problem? Kyle Schwarber seems to think so. But maybe it's the K-Zone that has us fooled.

Umpires being too shy to make impactful calls is hilarious considering their chosen line of work. All officials get too much hate and not enough credit no matter the sport though. Great video, I have a weird urge to go form a union now.

@Stefan Witkowski-Baker yes and no on them having a different impact. Yes that the guy is out for 5 min is big but plenty of times 1 strike can be game chamging. The game can shift so much in 1 at bat. And you have to figure that batter won't be hitting for a couple innings probably if they get rung up on a bad call. And if it's late in the game not at all. So can potentially take a player out of the offense for the rest of the game.

I like the human error aspect that live umps/refs allow. It feels great when your team benefits from a blown call especially when the situation seemed hopeless. Most of all I like to blame losses, not because my team blew it or the other teams play was superior but on bad officiating. The reason my Vikings have never won a superbowl was because Pearson def pushed off in the 75 NFC Championship Game. If that call wasn't blown the Vikes most certainly without a doubt would have won the Suoerbowl that year. Don't worry about their other 4 tries or the numerous, numerous absolutely sickening ways they blew other huge games.

I love how depending on the count and how the pitcher is doing the home plate umpire will often expand or contract it at their own discretion, it's just as bad as in the NBA where refs call fouls at their own discretion, more often than not at a biased rate for one team.

I watched the Phils Rocks game this year. He was incredible. First pitch he missed, didn’t miss a pitch the rest of the game. That is so cool you made a video on it. I think a video on Aaron Nola’s turnaround would be fantastic. By far my favorite starter in the game. Better fastball/sinker and curve command. Finally throwing more sinkers and trusting his D to field ‘dem grounders. Fly ball % down and added a cut fastball, a pitch that is barely noted at league average, but it along with his improved command made his pitch sequencing a bit less predictable. Change up has hurt him a bit this year, but mixing in that cutter to righties or lefties either early in the game and say, a 1-0 count to get them off the offspeed - or third time thru the lineup to a tough lefty, throw it up under the hands. Makes them lose focus on the front door sinker or masks another sight of his out pitch (chase curve). The way he sets hitters up is just really mind blowing. Half the time you can call the K as soon as you see who’s up. Really like what he’s done thus far, dude is seriously underrated. Nobody’s made more starts or eaten more innings than Nola in the last five years, if you’ll believe it..and he’s only 29 I believe. Really promising and I think he’ll continue to improve.

I wonder how a robo-ump would affect players as well. Such as pitchers who live off calls on the outside, or teams going for more offensive catchers because like you say, framing won't matter if there are robo-umps. Interesting.

I had the great pleasure of seeing the Red Sox-Yankee London series in 2019. Angel Hernandez was one of the umps. The amount of boos that followed his participation announcement at the start of the 1st game was incredible. Showed how many Americans were there (attendance was over 60,000). That same announcement at the beginning of the second game drew no response however.

I grew up on baseball in the late '90s and early 2000s. So, I know how wide and flat the zone used to be. I have watched a lot of games in the last 25 years, and generally speaking, I'm pretty impressed with how accurate most umps have gotten around the edge of the zone.

What I think you failed to notice is that umpires have an expectation and subsequently judgement of an intended pitch. Would be interesting to see if a slider that didn't slide, would be more likely to be called a ball ( in the strike zone). Compared to a slider that did slide, slightly out of the strike zone.

To answer the "what gives?" question at the beginning. I think it's just because Angel Hernandez has become the fans' preferred pinata of bad umpiring. Every time he has a bad game, fans take notice, whereas they don't with other umps. It's a reputation/sampling bias thing.

what if teams could challenge pitches?Something like 3 an inning per team. And they don’t stack up if they’re unused. (Or maybe they do haha that’s a whole new strat). But because we already have the technology to show the strike zone on live tv, a challenge can be near instantly resolved. That way we still have human umps, but also robo-umps who can come in during a clutch at bat.

It would be interesting to see future tech incorporated into baseball. Umpires would wear AR glasses that visualize a 3D strike zone in front of them.

One thing I have come to appreciate since coaching youth hockey, is that Refs/Officials/Umpires and an integral part of the game. There are ebbs and flows to the game that humans can comprehend that a computer just will not. They are human and prone to mistake, but all this reliance on technology just takes away from the purity of the sport. There needs to be as much emphasis on coaching the officials as the athletes so they can be better too. I always make sure the players thank the refs as without them the kids won't be playing at all. We've had a few games where we we're down to one ref and it changes the quality of the game. They are necessary and should be appreciated, even if you don't see eye to eye. I may not be a huge baseball fan, but letting computers call balls and strikes takes away a fascinating aspect of the game within the game (framing) and makes me want to watch it even less.

I'm fully in favor of automated strike/ball calls at this point. I understand the skill we lose of catcher framing but it's simply time. We've had the technology for a long time. I think it will do the sport good to have some proper consistency at the plate. Imagine the confidence it will give both pitchers and batters knowing exactly what the strike zone is and understanding that they won't get titled anymore by awful calls. It also helps umpires and their reputation, getting them out of the crosshairs of angry fans and players alike.

This video makes a great case for mlb to never switch to robot umps. It would be such a shame if these new umps who are actually competent and have adapted to the current game never get a chance. Not to mention losing pitch framing would take away a competitive aspect of the game

With the strike zone on my local broadcast, it does honestly blow my mind how great many of the umpires are at their job. Unfortunately, they are in a thankless position. As a former collegiate pitcher, the idea of robo umps is really bittersweet. I love watching good defensive catchers work, and it would be a shame for framing to no longer be necessary. I think a little bit of human error is what makes baseball special.

I think a little bit of human error is what makes baseball special.

One question. I thought a certain percentage of the ball needed to be in the zone.\? The Gonzalez example seems to me to be right because giving someone a strike an a that a stitch hits the zone on is a little unfair to the hitter and umpire. Seems should be fine either way.

Jomboy did a video on John Libka, he’s one of the fairest, most consistent and accurate umpires out there. MLB really need to put him in charge of some more important games.

I wish umpires gave press conferences after the game. That way we could clearly see their mindset. So many times when watching sports do announcers not realize certain rules, or everyone misses things themselves. Pressers allow everyone to get into the mind of the umpire, know why they made a "bad call" or give other insight.

I'd like to give a shoutout to Jim Joyce. He was one of the best umpires in the game, and it sucks his blown call in costing Armando Galarraga a perfect game will unfairly define him for the the rest of his life.

Also I have to say at least Galarraga can take solace in the fact that his game and name will never be forgotten due to that call. How many people are still talking about Phillip Humber’s perfect game two years later (or even know who Humber is) and Dallas Braden’s in the same year as Galarraga?

Let’s not forget how good a person Jim Joyce is that in the intervening years he’s fought really hard, lobbying the league to recognize Galarraga’s game as the Perfect Game it should be. Not to mention the kind of maturity it took for Galarraga to immediately forgive him

When my son played baseball a kid on our team was up to bat and the pitcher threw the ball, it hit the ground and bounced into the catcher's mitt. Ump called it a strike. The kid looked back at the ump and said "did you call that a strike"? The ump said "yes"!. Lol

To answer the "what gives?" question at the beginning. I think it's just because Angel Hernandez has become the fans' preferred pinata of bad umpiring. Every time he has a bad game, fans take notice, whereas they don't with other umps. It's a reputation/sampling bias thing.

This is very insightful to the actual issues with the strike zone. It is the old heads who have never adjusted, and may very well cause the role of the umpire, as well as the catcher, to completely change. The union would be wise to realize this before they no longer have a profession to represent.

See, I see it the other way. Giving the missed call advantage to the pitchers speeds along the game. And if one team’s pitchers still manage to give up all kinds of hits, it’s pretty compelling evidence that they just suck at their jobs and are probably on bad teams.
RatchetOfVaporex / Thomas Håkanson
I think the big thing for me is that most of the bad pitches he had called were strikes, versus Adrian Johnson's game where most of the bad pitches he called as balls. I think it says a lot when you're pissing off entire lineups with bad calls vs. just pitchers

My dad always told me when I was young that the strike zone moves as the game moves and as the inning at bat and players move I Learned this quickly and also was a catches games went smoothly at about a 60-70 percent clip on winning when I was playing travel high school was automatic we played maybe 4-5 really good teams a year and waxed everyone els. I bring this down to having good pitchers clutch defense and hitting for days. We never let the games take long always had extra water gun and other shit for both teams and umps makes a difference,

I hope robo umps don’t get implemented. It takes away the artform of catchers stealing strikes through their receiving. I think it would be interesting to see metrics that pertain to catchers receiving performances and how those relate to umpire performance. I wanna see if there are certain catchers that are plain better at getting calls before blaming the umps that are fooled by their receiving

I don’t believe they’re inevitable the robo umps… too many great parts of the game would be removed such as the catchers dropping balls, x ups etc… however I think a good idea would perhaps be an ear piece to let them know when they missed it. Or to have on field with communications with the rest of the ump squad such to hold them accountable

Right but you also have to take into account the position of the catchers glove. That is 30% of a strike/ball outcome. Some of the best catchers, such as, Mike piazza, are not just known for hitting, but more so for how they position their gloves whilst catching the ball. That’s why most pitchers have their preferred catchers.

I think it would be interesting to try a combination system of robot umps and real umps. Maybe a challenge for pitches could be implemented, where a manager could go out and have the ump check the robo ump to determine if a ball or strike was right or not.

As a Brit who follows (a little) baseball alongside my favourite sport - cricket - , it bends my mind that robo-umps aren’t already a thing. Despite being heavily entrenched in tradition and nostalgia, cricket has successfully introduced ball-tracking technology, not to the extent that umpires have become obsolete, but enough to drastically increase fairness/eliminate bias. Nobody who follows the sport seriously would argue it hasn’t benefited the game. There are differences between the sports which don’t make them absolute parallels (the stumps in cricket are an actual rather than imagined target for one). And granted the technology isn’t perfect. But I can’t comprehend why a business as big as MLB persists with allowing such glaring errors with such huge potential consequences for careers.

Umpires like Joe West and Angel Hernandez really do bring down the rest of the decent to great work that umpires do. And while mistakes will be made, I'm fine with that. I like the human element that goes into ball and strike calls.

SeñorTortas Developments
The problem with the old-school argument that "it's part of the human element" is that if fielders sported a fielding percentage below 90% (yes, I know fielding percentage is so archaic but it's relatable for an older generation), the same people would lose their minds. And obviously, fielding a baseball is more physically harder than calling balls/strikes, unless you have vision problems, which a lot of the veteran umpires seem to have, which means you shouldn't even be there in the first place. But you're right. Generally speaking, the more humans do something, the better they (theoretically) should get at it. As a population, umpires have improved marginally, for sure, but still improved. And we're in a better spot than we were 10, 20, 30 years ago. BTW, the Marlins not paying anybody bit had me ROFLing hahaha

I mean, the whole point of robo umps as a concept is based in the ideal of, “the right call must be made, no matter what.” If that is the ideal baseball wants, even though the younger utmost are better, why shouldn’t the mlb go with robo umps? They will be right, every time.
Philosophy of the Future
Umpiring is one of the reasons I can't seriously watch baseball anymore. Balls and strikes are so important. A pitcher's entire career revolves around painting corners and so too does a batter's career revolve around having a good eye for the box. We need robot umps. Too much of an already random game is decided by umpiring.

The MLB needs/wants/desires umps like Angel and Nelson, b/c it provides a chaotic wildcard that gets reactions from players and viewers. That, in turn, will lead to more eyeballs on live games, game highlights, and analysis videos. ;) As a big Braves fan growing up, I am still salty about Eric Gregg and his "performance" in the 1997 NLCS.
