Finally, MLB has wised up and added expanded replay.
According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), MLB will expand its replay beginning in 2014 playoffs.
Managers will be allowed one challenge over the first six innings of a game and two from the seventh inning until the completion of the game. Calls that are challenged will be reviewed by a crew in MLB headquarters in New York City, which will make a final ruling.
Challenges not used in the first six innings will not carry over, and a manager who wins a challenge will retain it.
For millions of baseball fans, this comes as great news. Most only wish this would have been in place when their team got screwed out of a bad call.
Which brings me to this thought—what controversies would never have happened if the new replay system was put into place?
