Here’s what David Bell said last night: “He’s fine. He had a little bit of a cramp, but no big deal. Just the heat and being his first game back, we wanted to play it cautiously there. But a great game in his first game back.”

They have a point. There are definitely some balls that would never be called strikes that would catch a sliver of the strike zone somewhere, that the robo ump would call a strike. And they would be nearly unhittable. If pitchers can master those pitches, it will change the game in a terrible way.

If you have a strike zone, and balls that pass though it are correctly called strikes I don’t see an issue with robo-umps. I would have an issue with the defined strike zone, at which point you adjust it.

I imagine that would likely happen.

However, my suggestion is to split it between the robo ump and the human ump. Because the height changes with every hitter, the robo ump only calls if the ball was over the plate, the human ump calls if it is the right height and the human ump makes the final call.

Heck... I’d even be open to a “replay” system for balls and strikes as a sort of compromise.

Give each team 3-4 challenges per game to use on the truly egregious calls. I know MLB has sucked with replay so far, but it’s hard to miss a replay on the strike zone when the computer tells you yes or no.

I had to listen the d-backs radio guys on the way home in the 1st on the XM feed and they went over Hoffman's stats against the D-backs. Did you all know the horror show that they are? Just about as bad a stats as I can imagine anyone ever having against a team. Every inning he is giving us today where runs are not scoring are a blessing given his history.

Honestly, Hoffman’s entire career up to this point has basically been a horror show.

Hopefully The Reds (and/or the altitude change) have fixed something.

After a 7 pitch first, Hoffman is up to 52 after 3 innings. I don't expect to go through the 5th or the line-up more than twice. Maybe, if he gets the next 5 batters out, Bell will let him face the lead-off hitter a 3rd time.
