If you had the choice of having Variable Umpires or having every call the home plate Umpire makes be perfect...which one would you choose?
Perfect, variable is just more unnecessary RNG
I want them to call any strikes on the black
Perfect, but perfect umpires need to be improved.
I wouldn’t mind a framing stat. Catchers with good framing enlarge the strike zone for your opponent. Bad framing catchers shrink it. I think it could be cool as long as it’s consistent. Framing is such a big part of the game that I think they have to incorporate it somehow sooner or later.
If it touches the black call it a strike. I hate the strikezone in the show.
Perfect on the line calls
Perfect umpires do not exist. SDS portraits real like experience
All I know is if they go with variable umps in '21 they better put Angel Hernandez on the cover!
Perfect... They had variable in 17 and it was a nightmare. Some dude actually figured out the tendencies and posted them here. The same HP umpire and crew can be found across multiple MLB and MiLB parks. I think there is only a total six Umpire crews and each had their own tendencies.
