Replay Sucks Newsbeat

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Ted Berg: I badly wanted MLB to adopt replay before 2014. Now I find it boring and dumb

I get that it’s a complicated thing and there are a million factors I haven’t considered. But the way it is right now kind of stinks, and I can’t imagine it’s actually improving MLB’s on-field product even if it’s technically making it more fair.

Like sports talk radio, it starts more arguments than it solves.
