    [/QUOTE] I vote for A+B.


                    What I find interesting was little joe's recent stance on the use of replays. After getting burnt by 2 bad calls he wants instant replay. When asked in the past he was against it saying "it would take the human element out of the game". I think he said that after a call went his way. Surprise!

    Re: Instant Replay

    Just trying to add a little levity :).

    I think trying to make IP part of the game would create more problems that it would solve. For example, the placement of base-runners if a call is overturned. Since virtually all calls are made while the ball is alive, there would be so much confusion as to where to place the runners.

    Here's an example: 1st and 2nd, 2 out, ball hit down the line in LF and ruled foul. Replays show it was fair. Do the runners get one base or two? Does the runner from second score, what about the guy on first who would have scored easily? Is the batter credited with a single or double?

    There are thousands of situations in baseball. I just can't see replay working well.

    H only.

    enough with instant replays.  we have been burned by it more than once.  but it is what it is...human error.  there's not as much of an outcry on it in baseball as in football as betting isnt as dominant.

     

    @ Alibiike.  the only way around that is the umps would have to start calling everything close "fair", see how the play plays out and then adjust back to foul if replay deems it.

    My favorite part of the article:

    "Having heard loud boos after striking out in the sixth inning, perhaps A-Rod was attempting to win back the crowd one fan at a time."

    Maybe in the playoffs have a replay ump upstairs in the booth able to talk to the head ump and say something like...hey Bill you might want to take a closer look at that play.  In honesty, except for balls and strikes - the umps get it right most of the time.

    They do get it right, most of the time.

    But, I don't have problem with helping them get it right more often.

    Re: Instant Replay

    If they want an instant replay, each team can have one challenge call.  Cuz more you add instant replay, more delays of the game!!  It could mostly stop the pitcher's moment of the game.

    Just like football.  They have too many replays now especially the newest one is fumble replay review.  Come on.  Once the offense keep rolling, and then they suddenly the need to review a questionable fumble call due they have to review all questionable fumble per new NFL policy, and it usually take like 2 to 5 minutes of the time.  Alot of time it could favor the defense cuz they can get some two to three minutes rest.  Since NFL coaches already have two challenging calls.  That is pretty enough to use them for the game.

    I don't think a replay takes much more time than it does for the manager to come out of the dugout, argue and get tossed.

    Re: Instant Replay

    I agree with the challenge system.  Seems to be working pretty well for the NFL.  You still get occasional screwups but a lot of calls get fixed and the delay factor has been minimized.

    Fair/foul definitely. Home run or not definitely. Out/safe should be like the NFL in that the manager has so many challenges.

     

    Balls and strikes never.

    I think the the league that loses the All star game should be awarded 3 instant replay challenges in the World Series.

    They already have an "umpire judgement" clause for advancing the baserunners on a ground rule double when they feel the lead baserunner could have advanced further (although it didn't help the NYY in 2004 on Tony Clark's ball); they could incorporate a varioant of those two rules into the replay official's domain on such fair/foul calls

    The judgment only applies on fan interference.  If the ball bounces into the stands it's automatically two bases.

    I'm not sure that's the case; I recall in the OLD (Original) YS someone hitting a 400+ Ft bomb that went for a ground rule double, yet the umps awarded the runner at 1st base a score on the play. Either way, the point involved the replay official and expounding the rule in this particular circumstance as brought up by other posters

    I thought it was just two bases but I do agree that there should be some discretion in that call.  Sometimes you'll have a runner literally rounding third as the ball goes out of play, who is sent back to 3rd base.
