That equates to a difference in only about four missed/mistaken called strikes a game max, even if you assume the technology is 99% accurate (which it's not, for all the reasons listed prior).
But hey, permission to carry on with your hyperbole. You've continually overstated things previously so I shouldn't expect any differently in this case. Bottom line is that the technology is really not yet far ahead enough to declare victory. It's still only a barely negligible upgrade.
Like most calls in baseball though, they are easy to make. Very few calls are borderline, but it is the borderline ones that are important. Some umpires, at least according to Pitch F/X are getting only 85-90% of the strike calls correct. For those guys, we are talking about 35-40 calls per game they are missing. That is an incredible amount.
