What is up with the umpiring this year?

I feel like Bob Brenley, always complaining about the strike zone, but the calls this year are driving me insane! Some of these ball strike calls are just plain laughable. I have never been a proponent of instant replay, but the longer this goes on, the more I think it is inevitable. If Soriano isn't swinging at it, then there is no way it is a strike. It's to the point that a flip of a coin is nearly as accurate. I just had to get the rage out, feel free to join me in the comments
