Hello Baseball welcome to the 21st century

MLB has moved closer to limited instant replay. GM's recommended(25-5 Vote) replay on close Home Run calls to determine whether potential home runs are fair or foul, whether balls go over fences or hit the top and bounce back, and whether fans have interfered with a possible homer.

However, Bud Selig's stance on replay is "I don't like instant replay because I don't like all the delays. I think it sometimes creates as many problems or more than it solves," Selig said then.

Great argument Bud. A baseball game lasting 3 hours & 48 minutes with bad calls is much more fun than a 3 hour & 55 minute game where the Umps got the call right. Also, getting the call right on a potential game winning home run would cause alot more problems than getting it wrong and having it shown on sports shows across America.
