With more access to Pitch f/x data fan outcry against bad home plate ump calls will drive MLB to go to a computerized strike-zone device (tablet) that the home plate ump will use to make the strike or ball call on the field.

Suggest you go back and re-examine the contention that pitcher hitting is getting worse. Pitcher hitting is getting worse in the American League. (Hoo boy, is it ever.) In the NL, however, there has been relatively little decline in pitchers' OPS over the past ten years, and not even that much since the introduction of the DH. The bulk of the decline happened between about 1960 (the 1950s had a number of years when NL pitchers OPSed over .400) and 1975.
