Here is one of many articles about the terrible umpiring in that game: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/9...-pitch-calling
That article contains a poll in which 60.6% of readers voted that balls and strikes should be called by computers, always, as opposed to 18.1% by umpires always (the remainder a series of intermediate options, which included review options).
It's not only Redszone that's concerned about this.
