  1. 1. Do you like the strike zone box graphic imposed on your tv for viewing?

    • No, I am a sports fan that doesn't need this gimmicky graphic to let me know balls and strikes!

    • Yes, it is sort of cool, it helps me see the strike zone and the close pitches.

    • I don't care one way or the other, whatever!

We could program the boos as well!😜

and hey maybe we could put cardboard cutouts of fans in the stands and then sooner or later use cardboard cutouts of the players too.

You can't keep calling everything that you dislike or disagree with a "poor analogy" buddy. So is this: I even like the little dot it shows where the ball crosses the strike zone.

You sure?  Pretty certain that guy is Enrico Palazzo.

But silence the booing when the pitcher throws to first to keep the runner close. Don't the fans know that's game strategy?That's a pet peeve of mine.

The home plate umpire would still signal the call, which would be delivered wirelessly to him through an earpiece or something. 

This process would have to be very close to instantaneous to not interfere with the flow of the game, like base stealing, etc. A significant delay would not be professional like.

If only there was a way to instantaneously transmit electronic data wirelessly and then convert it into sound waves for the human ear to detect 😉

Two things:

1)  Nothing pisses off an umpire more than tossing your bat and heading to first base assuming a walk, before he makes the call.

2)  This umpire probably had already ordered his medium-rare steak at the nearby steakhouse.

Yep, I keep waiting for someone to invent that...

No doubt you'd have a batter called out on strikes turning around to the umpire... "Are you sure you didn't lose wifi for that call?!"

Perfect example of why umps should not call pitches anymore.

    • We have no anti-vaxxers on this site.
    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.
