Marcus Aurelius: We need more breaks in baseball to slow the action down.
Khellendros: Go all the way - take the home play umpire completely out of the mix. Create an electronic strike zone, and fark the power-hungry drama queens behind the plate. The statistics on what constitutes a strike zone on an 0-0 count vs. 0-2 count vs. 3-0 count has demonstrated that they have no integrity when it comes to calling pitches. They should have come out years ago.http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/the-compassionate-umpire/....and a dozen other studies just like it have show how home plate umpires are in it for the show and the drama, not fairness.
steveGswine: MLB should just issue a statement scrapping the whole thing with a "let's be serious, it ain't gonna make a difference", over a supercut of Sunday's NFL reviews and other officiating errors.
