I don't like the constant tracker bar. HD is glorious and then they ruin it with that thing.I find it distracting. I don't know if its the colors or what because ESPN's doesn't affect me the same way.
They showed those close pitches because I complimented the ump on nailing the pitches. They were back door fastballs that backed up too late, were just off the plate, and the ump nailed the calls perfectly. The one that was in the zone he called a strike.
