You all realize that the PitchF/X data is serious biased, right?  No two camera angles are alike and, outside of velocity, the breaks and location of the pitches is off by a few degrees/mm every pitch.  You might think "no big deal" but that's a very big deal.  I've got no problem with them using the plate "force field" technology to grade umps on pitches over the plate but the technology is certainly not there in PitchF/X to do a 3d strike zone.

I am still waiting for someone to come up with a reasonable counter argument.
