Robot umps now!

@prof I would actually think the system uses realtime images to judge the strike zone borders, not previously-input batter info. Otherwise you don't account for the stance.

Aaron Boone Expresses Concern for Umpire's Day

2nd plate job in the majors is not the same as 2nd plate job ever. Presumably the strike zone in the minors is the same as at the top so if Miller needs adjustment time why woud he not get those games out in the field?

VAR Has One Job, And It's Failing Miserably At It

I like Howard's suggestions. VAR is useful but for sure needs some evolution in how it's implemented to reduce the four minute breaks.

I was just starting a three year, er, involuntary sabbatical due to being part of the first major layoff at Sun Micro (and the dot com bust) and had just started dating a lovely woman. But in four weeks I will hit my sixth anniversary with one of the hottest still private startups and in four months we'll celebrate our 16th anniversary.

As for this SB matchup, honestly I could care less who wins, but given that the wife would laser drill Brady with her eyes if she could I think this house will be rooting for the Rams.
