Ortiz misbehaved and will be punished, but did have every reason to be concerned about the calling of the balls and strikes.
I've long been fed up with umpires inability to locate the strike zone, and I have another variation of a system that would keep the game moving quickly, and yet give pitchers, batters and coaches some relief without slowing down the game.
Imagine that one to three umpires were reviewing balls and strikes from PitchF/x in real time, and rating them before any challenge was made.
A manager, with three challenges (pick a number) per contest sees a call he'd like to argue and pushed a button in the dugout which instantly raises a challenge flag.
The umpires off the field have already ruled ball / strike, so the challenge is instantly either upheld or declined. There would be no time consuming review as with home run calls.
I think this would do a lot to eliminate acting out or arguing over balls and strikes. It would also offer a relief valve for blown calls that could change the outcome of the game -- and there are many.
The umpires might even go for this because it would employ more of them every game.
