I think it could be cool. Some people think they should get rid of the rule where it's a live ball if the catcher misses strike 3. I think any pitched ball should be live, why should a runner on first get to take second but the batter has to stand there? Runner on 2nd, less than 2 outs, passed ball... right now, the runner on 2nd might stay put and the batter has to just stand there too. If the batter were able to take off for first, the runner at 2nd could run, or bluff, or try to draw a throw... anyway, the batter's going to get 1st base. Even with 2 outs, it's going to go badly for the defense if they try to make a play.

 
MLB has been around for 143 years and I see little reason for changes like this. Not a fan of having seemingly every friggin tag out play reviewed either, this contributes way more to slow game flow than pitchers or batters taking their time (screw the pitch clock) or mound visits by the catcher. I'm good with electronic balls and strikes but seems what they're using is something like Pitch Trax, which I don't think is the best method. Want electronic strike zones? Sensors at the front and sides of the plate. Front and side Side sensors will tell ya whether a pitch is on the black and the front sensors will also determine if a bat crossed the front of the plate on a check swing, which SHOULD be criteria for swing or no swing. Umps need to determine if pitch is high or low only, all batters are different sizes and have different stances which determines height strike zone. Fairly simple, Green LED and Red LED on ump's mask, red = ball, green = ump needs to rule if ball was in the zone height-wise only.The game was played by pretty consistent rules for 133+ years, now we're looking at some wacky chit. Unnecessary.

Yeah the percentage is pretty small on third strike pb/safe at first...Some parks you can run for days though so should be interesting for sure.

  I'm pretty sure he's still at it.  The last game I went to in Miller Park was in 2016 and I can personally attest that it was either him or someone who sounded an awful lot like him doing the broadcasts then.

This brings to mind a real deepfake/AI nightmare: virtual clones of Joe Buck covering every MLB game all season long.


 
I remember once tuning in expecting to see a Cubs game only to discover they were still showing a golf tournament that was running late.  At first I was really pissed off that they would be showing something as trivial as golf when there was baseball being played, but then I heard Joe's voice and thought it's worth missing an inning or two not to have to hear him once they do finally get to game.

This could be used as audio torture with a LRAD device, but would likely properly be deemed cruel and unusual punishment.
