    There are pitchers in the majors now that routinely throw over 100 mph and it's moving. Sliders that dart left or right at the plate and curves that break 2 feet. The pitching has gotten to a point where human umpires are just over matched. There are close games that go the other way because of 2 or 3 missed calls. The technology is there, why don't we use it?

    It’s Joe West’s fault.

    Joe is a great old umpire but the eyeballs ain't what they used to be and the pitches get nastier to see every year. And the young umpires struggle as much as the old ones.

    Joe West may be the worst umpire in the history of baseball.

    He's bad now that's for sure. But they all need help behind the plate with balls and strikes.
