A MUST READ ARTICLE (LINK) - AARON JUDGE'S STRIKE ZONE

Our dear friend, E.J. Fagan (who ran and wrote for this site back in the It's About The Money days) just wrote a MUST READ ARTICLE over at BP Bronx that focuses on the impact of the terrible strike zone calls being called against Aaron Judge.

Please read the article, check his math if you'd like, continue the research and the conversation, and send the link on and on until MLB does something about this.
