chimp_ninja: That's even dumber. Why do I get one challenge for six innings, then two in three innings? Last I checked, the game of baseball adds up the runs from all the innings equally. This isn't Jeopardy.


So that in 20 years, we can say "No one was a better clutch challenger than Mike Matheny."

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER:  Yes I'm kidding, but MLB's implementation of replay is going to be a fiasco.

I'm looking forward to seeing pitchers run for the mound to be able to get a foot on the rubber after there's a close play called in their favor... kinda like they do in football

Earguy: Baseball ROBOT WARS. Nine foot tall men of steel and hydrolics hitting the ball 500 feet. There'd better be brawls. I'm there.


Watching Wireless Joe Jackson go up against Pitch-O-Mat 5000 is always an instant classic.

I dunno.... I find the thought of managers having to bet a number of "runs" that they're right amusing somehow.

IAmRight: If you don't use your challenges, you get to put a guy on base to start the inning. Or, on defense, you can use it as a free out to start the inning. Neither affects player stats, but the batter would have to either go to first base or be out.


Well, this potatoed quickly.  Calvinball threads are under the "geek" tab.

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.

And it doesn't have enough tits and splosions.
