And yes, the robo ump will kill framing but this a collateral damage you have to accept.
It's not collateral damage; it's removing two sources of distortion at the same time.
A disadvantage might be aesthetic. Here is a robo ump called strike
Catchers might just sit on their ass and slap at the ball with their glove, no need for "proper" receiving anymore. So why waste energy doing it?
Still I think the advantages of the robo ump are bigger than the disadvantages.
