Right, but "framing" can result in balls being called strikes also. There has been ample discussion on the umpires calling balls and strikes.
In a perfect world, the "frame" would allow the umpire to get the call right each and every time. The cleaner the play in baseball, the increase in the likelihood that the umpire will get the call correctly.
