As the football season roars into its second half, there is disturbing news from the baseball front. Word is the GMs are considering implementing some sort of instant replay rule... I personally hate this idea. I like replays in the more techie sport of football, but not in the more organic sport of baseball. If they are looking to bite the bullet and take out the variables of human error from the grand old game, I think a much more worthwhile breakthrough would be to judge balls and strikes electronically. Umps very rarely get calls wrong on the base paths and such, and I feel these errors are part of the game. Watching umps enforce their personal opinion of the strike zone, however, is maddening. Bad enough that it seems no two of them share the same opinion about what constitutes a strike, but there are also too many cases of the same ump calling the same pitch differently during the same game.
