You know, ten years ago, we could have said that having juiced players is just part of baseball. In fact, the fans said, "We like the home runs," and that gave the stupid ownership the motiviation to ignore yet another curable problem with baseball. It's no different now with instant replay.
to Selig and the MLB owners for not being stronger on this issues.
to the fans who are against instant replay for giving them the justification to avoid this problem.

The manager "challenges" the call, and it turns out that the ball was actually fair. How in the world would you decide whether the runner on first would've scored, or which base the batter ends up at.
Ground-rule double. All runners advance two bases.
