The only thing about Replay is it doesn't and can't solve all the bad calls (just look at football for a prime example) That being said the fact that it is 2013 and baseball doesn't even allow the umps to veiw a video replay is insane.

Fuck the Ump!

First of all I'd like to commend you on that rant, who would have thought that baseball would touch a raw nerve on the good Doctor?

Technology isn't going away but if there is one sport that clings to its fossilized past its baseball. I think they should go ahead an use the ball/strike rectangle that you see on replays CALL the pitch on the Jumbotron for everyone to see - no mistakes there.
Close calls on the field should be immediately replayed and ONLY then does the umpire rule on it.

Fucking umps think they are more infallible than the Pope(s)!

Maybe if we would have had instant replay 2000 years ago we could finally see the Jesus was really out on first and he never came back out of the dugout.

Um...hello, Baseball does have replay. It just may not be the replay that you're looking for. But we can look for it to expand over the next couple of years.

And Seahawk fans don't grumble without reason over bad calls made 8 years ago. The Referee in question was the one who came out and apologized for his shitty calls. Tongue

Um..Go Giants.


Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

Damn it, Leyland! Why do you let Smily stay in so long?! I know you want to give him a chance and not make him get anxious and all that, but... he's not pitching well at all. If he continues to pitch so poorly and an inning lasts waaaaaaaaaaay too long, he's going to cause anxiety in HIMSELF Dodgy He's not going to improve. Know when to take him out!
