The whole height issue could potentially easily be solved.
Measure the players and their stances at the beginning for the year.
Put that in a database.
Votto comes to plate, the low mark and high mark strikezone are automatically set.
You'd only need a way to make sure the players didn't cheat during the measuring session.. Maybe have them hit against a pitching machine in spring training 15 times with sensors on their uniform..
The nice thing about this is that the player would have the exact same strikezone for the entire year.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
