    Instant Replay in Baseball

    Just wondering what you baseball fans think. People will say it will make the games even longer, but it should reduce the number of arguments drastically, don't ya think?

    I also think they should use an automated system for balls and strikes.

    Ill be open minded. If the replay system is done like football, Ill die. It takes forever and kills the game. Hockey and basketball are far more manageable. And since it wont be for balls and strikes, everything else is pretty obvious with only one look.

    And automated balls and strikes is the worst idea ever.

    Well at least they've made it like hockey where there's a central office doing all the reviews in one night.

    The way it's set up is dumb though - you get 1 the first 6 innings and 2 from the 7th on; why?

    Makes an already slow game even slower. Then again I'm not a big baseball fan so there you have it. But in all fairness the calls need to be correct, so in my opinion....go for it!

    We will have to see how this goes next year... I think baseball needs it for certain calls but I hope it doesn't get abused with stupid shit...
