Then you've killed an element of the game. Pitch framing is an art. This game isn't for robots.


The human element is provided by the actual competition among the players. Pitch framing is taking advantage of the umpire's incompetence.

You're going to complain if Clayton Kershaw gets a couple extra inches and strikes out Michael Taylor to end a playoff series?

Yes, if Kershaw is truly that great, then he doesn't need the extra advantage.
Inconsistency and inequality are the problem.


yes, they are.
