  • The MLB needs the replay

    The whole point of replay is to execute better play calling on the ball field . Like say your favorite team made it to the world series and was clearly safe but the umpire called an out then who would want instant play . The MLB would be way better with them. Ballplayers dont want there circumstance to rely on a man. People make billions of mistakes so there you have it

  • MLB should take away the rule

    Because it takes away the game of baseball. The MLB should play baseball like it was 100 years ago with the umpires call. The replay is not even correct. I was watching a game last night and they went to replay and the runner was clearly safe and they called him out.

  • Took too long to get a coaches challenge

    It will be interesting to see what happens this year with coaches being able to challenge certain umpire calls. Up til now Umpires have had free reign to call a game based on their emotion that passing day. I'd like to see it expanded even further to questionable calls on balls and strikes. Most other major sports have a way of getting a review, and baseball should have had it first!

  • Yes the mlb should

    Yes the mlb should have instant replay because umpires are just like us other humans they make mistakes also. Some bad calls end games. I was watching a cardinals game earlier in the season and the game ended on a bad call at fist base. Every other sport has instant replay so why shouldn't the mlb have one?

  • He the mlb should

    The mlb should have instant replay because umpires are just like us other humans they make mistakes also. Some bad calls end games. I was watching a cardinals game earlier in the season and the game was ended on a bad call at first base. Every other sport has instant replay so why should the mlb not have it

  • Why MLB should have instant replay

    I think they should have instant replay because the people watching might want to see the play or error again. Maybe they disagree on the call by the ump and seeing it again might change there mind. That is indeed the truth why I think the MLB should have instant replay.

  • Yea because I would like to see awesome plays over again.

    Yes cause they all make mistakes. I would not be fair because NFL has it , NBA has it. NHL has instant replay. Umpires make bad calls and if they see instant replay they would probably change their minds. And I would also like to see awesome plays over again. That is my opinion.

  • YES

    MLB should have instant replay. We're in the 21st century and many other sports such as the NBA, NFL, and NHL currently utilize it, so why not MLB? Of all the aforementioned sports, baseball uses the smallest sized ball traveling at the fastest speeds. It's no wonder umpires make mistakes as they're only human. Instant replay could easily and quickly correct missed calls.

  • Yes.

    MLB should have instant replay, especially in important games like the playoffs and the World Series. Unfortunately umpires often make mistakes, and they can taint a teams win or a teams lose. It would make the game more consistent and fair if repalys were involved. Despite this I think any replay system would need to be highly specific and quick, like that in the NFL, as baseball games can already be painfully long.

  • Its a joke!

    It would be fine if after looking at it forever they would actually get the call right. Time after time we watch these replays and new york gets it completely wrong. Who the hell is in new york deciding these plays anyway??? We are never told. Its terrible and a complete joke. If they cant do it right, which they obviously cant,then just get rid of repay completely.

  • Dump it, please.

    I could write 10000 words on the horrors of replay in baseball, but ultimately the most important thing is that, replay, in all sports, ruins the spontaneous enjoyment of the game. Instead of getting to celebrate a play as it happens you have to wait for the review to finish, by which time, the moment has passed. Why are we watching sports in the first place? If we wanted to sit through parliamentary procedure, we'd be watching C-SPAN. Baseball, in particular, has additional issues with replay due to the nature of the game. Some of the cameras are hundreds of feet from the action, and with the speed of the ball, most replays on close plays are just not conclusive. Also, the procedure of the coach's challenge in baseball makes the process especially tiresome. Just dump it.

  • The Mlb Replay System is corrupted and an utter waste of human time.

    Baseball, America"s pastime, has decided to implement a "replay system." With this, comes a "coaches challenge" which is stupid. Baseball is a game that is not ment to be perfect. Baseball Is supposed to be fun and entertaining. No fan wants to see an umpire put on dummy headphones and listen to them get the call wrong. And if they do decide to kept the replay, they should change it to the NHL system: they call Toronto and have them make the call

  • Replay ruining baseball

    Just saw Gore of KC called safe on steal of 3rd but overturned because his foot came off bag briefly (possibly pushed by 3rd basemans glove hand, possibly pulled by 3rd basemans pant leg in which Gore's spike was caught due to Valbuena Illegally blocking base without ball). He beat the throw by 9 miles. This has been called "safe" for 150 years and nobody complained. Why are we trying to fix something that is not broken?

  • Takes away the human aspect of the game.

    Baseball is a game of failure and humans are not perfect. Why should the game of baseball be perfect by having instant replay take over bad calls. During some of the replays this year the umps still got the call wrong with instant replay. Fans at home are getting better views than the umps at the review headquarters. So why have it if they are still getting them wrong.

  • Get rid of this instant replay before the only people left watching this laborious exercise are in the MLB war room in NYC.

    Just watched a replay of a very blurred image of a first baseman's mitt in very close proximity to the torso of the runner as the runner's fingers reached the base on a pickoff play. The blurred image of the mitt won over the the runner's fingers at the base and the umpire's call was overturned in NYC. If they can stop the game for that then I can stop watching their game altogether.

  • Games Ending on committee meetings

    Instant replay removes the excitement from the game. A close call when made, whether it's right or wrong is exciting, when you then stop, go to replay, wait for a committee meeting, than have the call changed saps the excitement from the play. I have seen games where this comes up and it kills the game for me.

  • Instant replay slows the pace to glacial.

    Went to a Wednesday night Nats game. There were three booth reviews. Wound up with an over four hour game. No extra innings, 4+ hours. Didn't get home till well past midnight. No more evening games for me. Modern ball was already too slow paced. Look at scorecards from the old era. Nine innings in two hours were the rule, not the exception. MLB should be making moves to pick that pace back up, but they are going the other way. There is simply no excuse, none, that a nine inning game with no weather delay should ever, ever be a four hour ordeal. Ever.

  • This kills the double play and makes a slow game slower!

    The desire for some to create a perfect game without flaws is downright bad for the game. We love the debates about calls and the historic injustices. Why add replay which still will never be 100% accurate and slow down a game that is already way to slow? Baseball has all sorts of little idiosyncrasies that have been a part of the game for generations. Now replay is destroying those little details and traditional ways. Baseball has no respect for its roots anymore and that is a sad thing. Watch as double play numbers plummet, and also expect the New York in house to corrupt the system. They have already this season. Games will never be perfect anyways just look at some of the awful ball/strike calls we have seen so far by umps who should be fired for fixing games. Now we are going to have people we can't even see on the field fixing games. Baseball has gone to hell. It is a sad day.

  • Get rid of the replay

    MLB is the most classic sport in America, and that is how it became the national pastime. Why modernize it! If they make a bad call you learn to play around it. They make bad calls for both teams, and that makes it so much more exciting, Plus now we will never get to see the fun manager ejections anymore. Why screw with something so great?
