I'm just curious as to how much it will slow the game down.....even further.

Blown calls that would have been overturned http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/08/7-bl...nstant-replay/

Would that include safe/out at the plate on inside-the-parkers?

Blown calls that would have been overturned 7 blown calls that would have been overturned by MLB instant replay | For The Win
And 3 of the 7 wouldn't have been overturned -- typical idiocy by McPaper.

Haven't seen the Carlton Fisk/Ed Armbrister play in a long time.

Thoughts:

1) Maybe when you have a ball in your hand you should tag the dude when you bump into him.

2) Darrell Johnson must not ever cuss. "Lousy Operation" is a pretty funny comment.

You know, I recall this same resistance from football officials when they first fixed their game by adding replay.

ESPN's PTI discussed how it may be better to have these challenges at "baseball central" so MLB could call what to challenge in the game, vice "coaches challenges." Rationale being, what happens if you're OUT of challenges and there's a controversial play in the 13th inning?

They also mentioned how this might "quicken" the game as managers wouldn't "waste so much time" arguing calls. That was interesting.

A couple of questions:

1) Bottom of sixth, two out, close play at first, runner ruled out to end of inning, right after the opposing pitcher throws his eight pitches, the manager comes out and challenges the call saying he was safe. Is the challenge allowed, when is the cut off point where challenges aren't allowed?

2) What is the standard for overruling a call. When a call that should be overturned isn't, who in the Commissioner's Office will take the blame?

I like this article's take on it.

Why not have a 5th umpiring crew member at each ballpark be responsible for replay review in an expanded format? Makes better sense than the new, proposed policy.

Here is another situation:

Runner at third, bottom of the ninth two out tied game, ground ball to third, runner holds, on the throw to first the runner at third breaks for home, the play at first is ruled out, extra innings. However home team manager challenges and the call is overturned, but the runner at third, who was halfway to home when the batter is ruled out, does he score? The first baseman could say if the first base umpire had ruled the batter safe, he would have then throw home to retire the runner trying to score.

Another question -- Does it have to be a "call" to be reviewed? That is, can a manager challenge a "no call" on, say, a possible balk?

I'm not a fan of replay in football, either. I know that puts me in the minority. Football is not baseball. Baseball already is struggling with pace of play, I really worry what this could do.

I suspect they will allow additional challenges in extra-inning games -- maybe one for every two or three extra innings.

Far more expensive than simply having them at a central location in New York. For all practical purposes they could review the plays from their home.

Heck, that's what we all do.

To have a 5th umpire traveling w/ all of the crews is not practical or cost efficient.
