Instant replay and over relying on things like “robot strike zones” is killing sports. It’s never ever ever made any sport better than it was previously but they just keep going back to the stupid well.

Manfred says when the time is right this will expand which I take to mean if it goes over okay next season by 2021 it will be in mlb. He continues to destroy a beautiful game

Tennis replay works pretty good.

Not sure if that's really a sport though.

What good is it to gain accuracy if we lose our soul?

I've never visited the HOF and won't do it until they sort a few things out. I've always believed as long as you were in the top 10 at your position for ten years or so you are in end of discussion. The vote is pure BS.

Good info, so what were their individual votes? Was it a case of them using their votes for Ted Simmons instead of Lou, for example? I have no idea how it works, like vote for not more than 2 of the X candidates?
