Strike Zone Calls: Requiem For Michael Crotta

In a certain monster thread, there was some discussion of the study showing that Pirates pitchers got the least generous strike zone of any pitcher. Sinkerballers are supposed to get squeezed more than other pitchers, so I checked out Michael Crotta's strike zone for his brief ML stint. Looks like he got about half the calls in the bottom quarter of the strike zone, which pretty much put paid to him as an ML pitcher. And then there's Charlie Morton (full stats from last year)... yowza.
