    No, it has nothing to do with analytics but everything to do with veracity.

    IMO, never having an incorrect call in baseball would take away from the game, in more ways than one. It's frustrating at times, but part of the enjoyment is the reaction to the umpires' incorrect calls, be it from the fans, the dugout, the pitcher, or the batter.

Trying to automate the sport , while admirable, does not make it more fun , exciting or interesting. As usual, Manfred and his flunkies are barking up the wrong tree.
    Well said. On this, we 100% agree.

    Now , Manfred has another gimmick they are trying out in the minors . A batter can " steal first base " if the ball gets past the catcher . Stupid.
