I never wanted replay.  Never.  I thought baseball was the game that didn't need it.  Untouched by technology - or, at the very least, spared its touch more so than the other major sports - baseball could survive without it.

The marginal good of correcting a few missed calls wouldn't be worth, I thought, slowing down the game and pulling it further away from the old-time feel that made it special.

Now, two weeks into the season, I've only been emboldened.

Admittedly, my position isn't backed by statistics.  I haven't analyzed the problem's sabermatrics.  I haven't charted or graphed its causes and effects.  All I have is an opinion informed by the feelings that have bubbled up watching the young 2014 season.

Feelings that all trend the same direction: Replay is bad for baseball.
