Yep, nothing wrong with Eric Gregg's strikeout zone back in the day in the playoffs because at least he was consistent in calling the outside pitch a strike.

Yuli's brother stole home with Chris Sale pitching earlier today... Sale has been pretty horrific to start the year. After today has a 9 ERA and gave up 5 ER in 4 IP vs the Blue Jays today. Woof

It's just silly to me that we are now saying "wrong is okay if you're consistent about the wrongness"

A strike zone is right and wrong, black and white. If you consistently give 2" on the corner, you're consistently wrong. Crazy.

And yet the players ask for just that- consistency. It's no different than the "neighborhood" force out that was part of double plays turned at second base. It's been addressed now, but for years it was accepted by the players because it kept middle infielders from being killed. They had no choice but to address it once instant replay came around. The strike zone might be on a similar course correction.

Speaking of, nothing irritated me more than strike calls in the 1980's (I think it was back then), when Maddux and Glavine got five inches off the plate, but a down-the-middle fastball at the belt was considered up in zone. Agh!

I didn't say its ok. I said you can plan for it. What you cant plan for is inconsistent. ML players say all the time that all they want is consistent.

Yes, ideal is 100% right. You aren't going to get that. So do you want wrong and random or wrong and consistent?

It's ridiculous how often people think you're on staff just because you take a scorebook to the ballpark. I'm not even wearing Astros gear today.

I am assuming Cole saw Minor start wild in Arlington during the Kulpa game and get a generous strike zone so he is going with that strategy!

If they are going to throw it there and get that call low and away it's going to be a long night.

We're the Rockets of baseball. IF singles are the layups, and dingers are the threes.

We are the kings of not driving in runners on 3rd with less than 2 outs.
