ariseatex: Because baseball isn't slow enough.
mybulkaddress: To those basically saying it will ruin the game, it's called progress. Get over it. Times are changing and technology is improving.
IAmRight: Marcus Aurelius: If you're going to let one fielder get out of batting, why not all of them?I think it's pretty damn clear that a pitcher is not simply a fielder. Pitching is more work than all the other positions combined.
dywed88: What is the benefit of having the home plate ump involved?
dywed88: In fact it runs into the issue of having a vested interest in the call that prevents corrections already. And it will be the move that adds more time to the game.
idesofmarch: Although I do kinda like the single wild card game, since it does put emphasis back on winning the division, and that was useful.
Joe_diGriz: Other way around - 1 challenge through 6, 2 from 7th on.Personally, I think any game umped by Angel Hernandez or Joe West should have an additional 5 challenges added.
idesofmarch: I hope that changes can be made year by year, because I don't think you'll need more than one year to determine what's working and what needs fixing.
Gecko Gingrich: Peter von Nostrand: They used to also ride trains when traveling but then times change and now teams fly.Not always. Buses, trains and planes are used depending on distance.Peter von Nostrand: Uh no on college, there is a DH in college.That's been covered. See above.Peter von Nostrand: Little League play with a 45' mound and 60' bases, why not go to that as well?Ah, I see I'm arguing with an idiot. My bad. Won't happen again.
DeWayne Mann: Joe_diGriz: At least Selig might be out of the way by then.Hahaha, you think Selig is going away at some point.

IAmRight: DeWayne Mann: Pretty much everything.Not even mentioning the silliness of having it reviewed in the league offices instead of on-site.I hope there's a huge storm in NYC when it's nice somewhere else and they f*ck up a call and there's a challenge and "well, sorry, we can't reach them - power and phones are out."
downstairs: DeWayne Mann: This is a terrible implementation, and I suspect that, once it doesn't work, Bud Selig will just throw his hands up and say "Hey, at least we tried."Curious what you don't like about it?
Lost Thought 00: It's a step in the right direction.
