I see no need for that NFL style review.

Isn't this pretty much agreeing with what I suggested? One ump in a review booth... meaning a 5th ump, who is already present at every game as an injury replacement, anyway.

No.
You said this:

It's not what I said. Same idea, but different method.

I read that as 181 plays per team, per season, that would benefit from review. 2,700 plays overall, per season. That's pretty huge. You say it's not simpler in baseball but I bet 13.9% is a lot lower than the "too close to call" plays in the NFL. And the idea is that instead of arguing, you spend that time reviewing the call. Would it even add any length to the game? Only negative is interrupting the break-neck speed that a baseball game operates at... :-°

And who said it wouldn't?
It's clearly not a response to would basaball benefit from having review or not. :-°
It's a response to this:

And this is not true.

Let's not clutter up this fine thread with a stupid tangential fight. Take it where it belongs...the closers' thread.

I don't like the fact that this statistic doesn't tell you how many plays would be overturned

Not bored enough to fall for Syfo's trolling. I'm actually kinda busy at work today unfortunately.

Lots of afternoon games to monitor, which is nice. Tim Hudson hangs on for the W, and Jesus Montero is making me happy for not dropping him for Grandal (I'm platooning them both, so far with good success).

And the Cubs are on their way to winning 14 of their last 19 games... but still 13.5 back of the second wild card.

Id say the most important thing is to get the calls right, as much as possible. The technology exsists and umpires have to change their old ways.

Flame wars will not be tolerated especially when it seems like the flamers are trying to purposefully do it in threads being enjoyed by others. There's no slack where your stupidity interrupts other people's enjoyment of the cafe. Nobody wants to read your garbage. If you can't help yourself get an email address and text your stupidity. Just keep it out of the Cafe. Hort and others work hard on these threads and we will not have you guys disrupting it.
