Instant Replay Coming!

This is going to be a very quick post. I just had to let you all know that instant replay is coming!

This is long long long long long overdue. Also amazing how two of the three instances cited in the ESPN article took place at Yankee Stadium. Yeah, it's really these new ballparks that are causing the problem.

The umpiring in this league has been piss poor for over a decade, ever since the likes of Angel Hernadez and Dan Iassogna were assured tenure (I have no idea why). Instant replay is needed not just on home run calls, but also on plays at the bases. We can leave balls and strikes alone for now.

Better a game be slower and more plodding but fairly decided than decided unfairly against a team on account of a terrible call.
