After calling a game-ending strike three on a pitch Harry Doyle from "Major League" would describe as "juuuuuust a bit outside," Marty Foster didn't hide. The plate umpire in the Rangers' win over the Rays acknowledged to a pool reporter that he blew the call on a pitch that should have walked Ben Zobrist instead of giving Joe Nathan his 300th career save. While Foster gets points for accountability, it doesn't change the numbers on the scoreboard. How do you rate the quality of umpiring in the major leagues?

Mistakes were made

Rays skipper Joe Maddon wasn't very happy to lose a game on a questionable strike call. Should MLB ever turn to video to check balls and strikes?


Should Major League Baseball ever use video technology to check ball/strike calls?
