I'm all for it. Consistency is vital. We can ask Orange but I'm pretty sure the rule book doesn't say a strike is to be determined by whoever the umpire is for that particular game. Human element and controversy are most definitely NOT what I want to hear about when a game is determined. Here is my example:

Game 7 of the World Series, Angels are down by one in the bottom of the 9th; Mike Trout is up to bat with 2 outs and the bases loaded; and Angel Hernandez calls him out on a third call strike that was obviously 6 inches off the plate.

Sorry but no thank you. I rather have the best team win and if Trout let a close pitch go by so-be-it. You want "Human Error" and "Controversy" go watch reality TV or a soap opera. I prefer sports to be won by the better team that day, not because of a bad call. In every sport that I watch the best umpires/referees are those who aren't remembered after the game.

The Bellinger at-bat shows exactly why human umpires are flawed. The umpire is setup on the inside corner. He cannot see the outside corner, anything that is close over there he is guessing.

Infractions: 1/0 (0)
ninth inning of a 4-2 game with a man on and no outs

ring up a guy on a pitch a foot high and wide

this is like NFL referees having discretion to decide that a team getting 9 yards is close enough for a first down

It was so high, the catcher couldn't even pull his glove down far enough to make it appear it hit the strike zone.

Edit: I've now found my favorite Twitter account.
