If Arraez had the robots calling the pitches, it would a tie game and the bases still loaded. The only reason he fouled so many off, was because he couldn't trust the ump to call the high zone correctly! He finally gave him a chance to, and the ump failed massively. You say the incorrect calls all average out? It is not about average, it is about not calling them wrong. It changes every game that is played.

Incredible, 3 strikes were called on balls out of the zone and Arraez was punished for having a good eye. Can't wait for the automated strike zone! 

Same here.

Twins rally for 5 runs, load the bases and then get completely snowballed not once, not twice, but on three straight pitches?

Has to be the worst AB from an ump I've seen in my life.

Well, damn it. Arraez was exactly the guy you want in that situation because he doesn’t usually do exactly what he just did. 

You mean have a great AB with a professional eye at the plate?  Ump should be embarrassed....

Ever seen Angel Hernandez?  Built a career on crap calls. Balls, strikes, safe, out, fair, foul...he has missed them all.  Consistently.

Very possibly true. The first “strike” was definitely not a strike. 

Also, had he not fouled off those other pitches he would have been called anyway, he never had a chance in that ab

I think, in this AB, the only reason Arraez swung at the other high close ones and fouled them off, was becasue he felt he couldn't trust the umpire to make the right call. Unfortuneately, he finally gave the ump a chance, and the ump continued to fail. That AB was a walk with the and RBI, tie game, and the bases still loaded.
