You Can Thank Joe Torre for Helping to Keep MLB Behind the Times

You can stick Joe Torre in the same category as Bud Selig and Sepp Blather when it comes to advancing the game using instant replay. And that’s not a good thing. Torre, who opposed the use of instant replay as a manager, feels the same way in his role as Executive Vice President of Baseball…Read More

FIFA Concerned About Wrong Replays

Man, I thought American sports and their leaders/organizers had things backwards. In soccer, we have players cussing out their coaches, players calling out their fans, questionable refereeing, and multiple missed calls. When England got screwed over Sunday by a missed goal call, I figured the outcry that soccer needs to integrate instant replay to review…Read More

MLB Should Give Teams Two Challenges Per Game, NFL Style

I’m not saying we should review pickoff plays, dropped third strikes, balk calls, whether or not a batter went around,…Read More

Holliday Was Out; Baseball Needs Instant Replay

Though the Rockies season has been incredible, their celebration magnificent, and the momentum in their favor, they never actually won Monday night’s playoff game. Matt Holliday never touched home plate on his dive. In fact, Barrett successfully blocked the plate and tagged him out, producing what should have been an amazing double play. Not to…Read More
