Instant Replay for MLB. Agree or disagree?

by Randy Allen

This should have been done years ago.  Too many controversial calls!  Let's get it right! 

Major League Baseball owners unanimously approved funding for expanded instant replay in 2014.

Approving funding is the first step for MLB to have full-blown instant replay next season.  Right now only home runs can be reviewed. 

But next season every decision likely will be subject to review, except balls and strikes, checked swings and some foul tips.

The owners plan to approve the new rules when they meet in January after agreements with the unions for umpires and players.
