Don't kill the umpires (even though there have been some VERY strange incorrect calls that make you wonder if the umpires are perhaps thinking about something else during the game). At least they can't issue penalties, like in football, and really bollix up the works.
To me the more concerning issue is calling balls and strikes-especially in the late innings of close games. There doesn't seem to be a consistent strike zone among major league umpires.
PS Doesn't Anaheim stadium use QuesTec? Check out the weird animation that company has for its Umpire Information System.
