Ron Kulpa's Strike Zone

Hey everyone.

The Astros kind of suck right now - listening to the at bats on the radio (as I mostly do) is kind of painful, then checking out the highlights on just worsens the pain.  

The Astros are doing what they have done during periods of time for the last few years when they forget to score runs.  Which is: get enough hits and walks, lose players on the base paths, not hit for consistent power, and leave RISP all over the place.  They don't need any help screwing up.

For those who are interested, however, here is Ron Kulpa's strike zone from last night:

It, uh, isn't good.  In fact, it is possibly the worst I have seen for a while.  The worrying thing is that Ron Kulpa is not the worst umpire in the league.  Not by a long shot.

Bring on robot umps, I say...
