Re: Umpires in the Postseason
As I said in the other thread, when the embarrassment from the technology showing their frequent mistakes hits a certain point, umps will lead the charge in instituting an effective system for providing them technological assistance.
For players, coaches, etc. it evens out in time. For umps, all missed calls are bad. Nobody wants to be the next Jim Joyce, especially not in the playoffs. They, more than anybody else involved, have a vested interest in getting it right.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
