Winter Meetings

MLB General Managers are meeting in Florida this week. One item they'll discuss is using instant replay to determine if HRs are fair or foul, over the wall or in play (they voted against it last year). As you might know, I'm all for it. And I would want replay extended to all other aspects of the game. Here's a post I made 3 months ago on this very subject. The right call is of paramount importance.

Baseball has often been the slowest sport to adapt with the times. The other 3 major sport leagues include some form of video replay to assist officials. Baseball thinks of itself as being traditional ('the national past-time'), which often gets in the way of sensible (and necessary) changes.
