7. It would be a welcome relief...

...technology is already exposing how bad the umps are with the strike zone right there on the screen. Not only that, the umps aren't even consistent, changing with the reputation of the pitcher or the batter.

I also love how announcers say that this ump has a "wide zone" or "gives" the low pitch or the "high strike."

Batters are faced with expanding the zone based on the umpire's rep. Pitchers are forced to pitch to it.

With the speed and movement of the modern pitcher there is no way in hell that a human can come close to being accurate.

Bring on RoboUmp!

(Unfortunately, the umpires union won't "allow" it...)
