[quote=“NPA Pitcher”]If you were to take away human error, this is what would happen. The pitcher would make a perfect pitch every pitch, but if the hitter cannot error, than he will hit a 500 foot home run every time. It’d get old pretty fast. Everyone would be pretty freakin good at everything.
As for umpires, here is a quote I found and like: “To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer.”
You don’t get rid of umpires calling balls and strikes. Deal with it. You’re 14 years old. If you can’t deal with an umpire calling balls and strikes, it’s definitely time to find a new position, or for that matter, sport.
You can say that he missed calls and you walked in runs. But, I bet he gave you calls that the batter didn’t like whether it be high or low, inside or outside.
If you want computers to run everything there’s a game out called MLB 2K8. I think you can pick it up at any electronic store…[/quote]
did i say i couldnt deal with the umpire calling balls and strikes? i dont have the slightest problem with an umpire calling balls and strikes. would rather have the umpire, but a a good one, not some guy off of the home team’s bench.and i walked in a run once in my life and i believed the ball was actually in the zone. ended up losing that game by 1 run. Ive seen umpires call 4 straight pitches down the middle balls, and ive also seen the guy almost get drilled in the face and its been called a strike. a k zone would get rid of calls like that. but you cant beat having a fair ump in there, one who knows the game, and most importantly, the strike zone.
