It is about time baseball entered the 21st century. Unfortunately, the replay system they've adopted amounts to entering the mid-1980s.
Baby steps. Football has slowly transitioned most plays away from the coach challenge system to the booth system.
The four items left to challenge in MLB, by 2024:
1. Catcher's interference
2. Leaving 3B early on sac fly
3. Relief-pitcher allowable beard length
4. Is that girl really the hottest one FOX could find to show between pitches
11-12: It's kind of a TV thing, at least for me.
The pace of games could be slashed if you cut the time between innings back down to the pre-"gotta get these four ads run before we start the second" times.
The difference is that in baseball, when the game is going on, there is lack of "action" and it highlights how slow it can be sometimes... NFL hides this by having the best instant replay system on the planet and re-showing the plays over and over from different well filmed camera angles...
It's especially annoying when the reliever's coming in to get the lefty-lefty matchup that you know the manager had planned on arranging before the game even started. It's not like they snuck David Ortiz into the lineup out of nowhere, I don't get why you need to waste everyone's time getting your pitcher more time when you could just start warming him up sooner.
