Watching the game last night, I couldn't help but think that Paulino was getting squeezed a little by Dana DeMuth, the home plate umpire. It appears that is the case, although that may also include Collins, Teaford, and Wood. What I notice from this is that there are some pitches by KC on the right side of the plate (umpire's POV) that were called balls that were inside the strike zone. However, there are some pitches above the strike zone from KC pitchers that were called strikes. l'll also point out that off the plate to the left, there are several pitches being called strikes, but that went for both teams. It appears Dana DeMuth did squeeze the Royals pitchers as to the right side of the plate. It also appears they were given more strikes higher in the zone... but that is because Royals pitchers were throwing more pitches in that area. What do you think?
