Kotaku's Owen Good chimes in with another great read. The Beauty of Human Error, Committed by a Computer Umpire.

Quote:
"It's the bottom of the fourth and that SOB Dallas Hodges is squeezing the zone low and away, again. Strike three went by like a freight train and Hodges just stared at it like a cow. This ump's a disgrace.

This ump also isn't even real. He's one of 10 in MLB 10: The Show, who can, thanks to a menu option, call personal strike zones that can definitely make you believe someone has it in for your pitcher. And when superstar hitters get to the plate, I swear they're both in collusion. I'll get nothing on the corners and then I'm forced to groove a two- or three-ball pitch and Ryan Braun hits it into the 25th century."

Vey nice article, I always play with the variable strike zone and all that jazz and yeah the way he puts it about the difference in opinion between reality and video games is a good topic to cover.

Good Job Kotaku!

The end of that with Bruan made me laugh lol.

But I know exactly what you mean, nothing like painting the corners and having it called a ball, game has it out for me I swear

The missed calls are frustrating when you're trying to compete. But I wouldn't even consider turning the variable calls off. It just adds so much realism. So I get ticked and just live with it. Maybe the next bad call goes MY way?
