Instant Replay!


Baseball could have a new position next year: replay judge.

General managers recommended for the first time Tuesday that instant replay be used to help umpires make difficult decisions.

The proposal, approved by a 25-5 vote, was limited to boundary calls -- whether potential home runs are fair or foul, whether balls go over fences or hit the tops and bounce back, and whether fans interfere with possible homers...

Selig earlier this year said he did not favor replay "because I don't like all the delays. I think it sometimes creates as many problems or more than it solves."

I like it a lot...It's a start...Keep the human element in the game, but try to get the impossible calls right and don't over use it. What say you?
