Replay Sucks Newsbeat

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Two video replays were botched in the Dbacks-Angels game last night | HardballTalk

I’m really tired of replay. It slows the game down. Managers often ask for looks when the result isn’t very close. At the same time replay officials often get the calls wrong.

WaPo: Nationals Victims of 2 Bad Umpire Calls, Replay No Help

Because the Nationals lost the challenge, they couldn’t ask for any more reviews until the seventh inning, when the rules allow them to as the umpiring crew chief to look at a play and determine if a review is needed. But their next close call came in the sixth.

After the play, Harper lingered at first base thinking Williams would emerge from the dugout to challenge the play. But he couldn’t.

“I think [umpire reviews] should be from the fifth on probably,” Harper said. “There are so many plays from the fifth inning on that are big-time plays. I don’t know if it should be like the NFL where we get one challenge a game until after the seventh. It should be a little bit different. That’s the way it goes right now. Gotta live with it.”
