I, For One, Welcome Our New Robot Instant Replay Overlords

Here's DeWayne Wise's non-catch for an out from last night's Yankees game. Blah blah blah ridicuolous, blah blah blah easy fix, blah blah blah baseball needs instant replay.

On the other hand, I'm sure Cleveland is happy to trade that out for the knowledge that they're playing the game as close as possible to the way Satchel Paige played it.

(Also, I know baseball is all about deception, but lookit how nobody in the fan section questions the out- even the two guys staring at the ball. Fucking Yankees fans.)

  1. See, this is one of those areas that I don't buy the argument that controversy is good for the sport and desired by the fans. Yes, I like bitching about sports as much as the next guy, but that bitching is secondary to getting the call right on the field. Ultimately I want to see good play and I want to see the better team win. I don't want to trade that in for water cooler gossip.
