Simple and sweet - yes or no. Poll forthcoming.

Absolutely.

Yes. But Jorge Orta would have been out.

I voted no. Of course I want to see baseball die so I may not be the best person to ask.

Let's make the call right. I don't care if it adds 10-15 minutes to game.

Just like in football.

I would love to see instant replay in baseball.

I very much doubt we'll hear talk about replay in the coming days. Or, if we do, it'll be speculation by sportscasters and MLB won't even consider the idea.

Of the four major sports, baseball is the one most reluctant to change, IMO.

It's also the one that is dying a slow, uncomfortable death.

I voted no because I want baseball season to be over as quickly as possible.

Exactly what I was thinking before you said it. Baseball is the most tradition laden sport I've ever seen. However, they did allow artificial turf and lights at Wrigley so i guess it is possible.

i think yes we should have instant replay but an idea might be to only have it in postseason. the regular season is 162 games you get some calls you lose some, but in the postseason in a best of 5 or 7 those calls can ruin your chance at the championship

Actually attendance has been up at record levels the last couple years. I realize this is a football board and there are problems with the sport, but I don't think the game is "dying" necessarily...

I agree with your reasoning and I am all for anything that will improve any sport (except soccer). But I don't think it will ever happen that they use it in post season but not regular season. It would be too much like "Yeah, we know it's a good thing but we are too hardheaded to adopt it full time".

I quit watching baseball in 1994 so I may be way screwed up on this. But it seems the NFL is one of the best managed organizations in the country. The founding fathers and Pete Rozelle probably had a lot to do with that. But Baseball seems totally unpredictable to me. I can only sit on the sidelines and watch what they do. (And don't do). As Yogi said "You can observe a lot just by watching."

Yes, I think it makes sense. Although the traditionalist would fight it tooth and toenail.
