Baseball Needs A Lot More Replay [NoeBrainer]

Reason #51,864 of why baseball needs more replay occurred over the weekend as Mark Teixeira and the Yankees got screwed.  Baseball needs to catch up with the times as soon as humanly possible.

Major League Baseball is completely behind the times.  MLB is totally outdated when it comes to progressive usages of replay.  Take for instance the game between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles last Saturday.  The Orioles beat the Yankees 5-4 thanks in part to an absolutely horrendous call by umpire Jerry Meals.  Mark Teixeira was called out in the top of the 9th inning to end the game.

The ball was a good two to three feet from reaching Mark Reynolds’ glove while Teixeira’s hand was touching first base.  It’s 2012, baseball.  We’re not in the 1940’s anymore.  Embrace technology.  There isn’t a major sport in the country that has failed to introduce a reasonable amount of replay in its sport other than baseball.  The fact that this play on Saturday could occur on a much bigger stage is scary.  Mark Teixeira could be called out to end the World Series and there isn’t anything baseball could do about it.  That is the definition of brutal.
