    So far I like it a lot....get the call right, it's only taking around 2:00 on average.

    But "the neighborhood play" at second base during an attempted double play is Non-reviewable

    Why..... shouldn't the infielder have to touch the base like it's stated in the rules

    Thanks for your input

    good idea, but is slows down an already slow game

    put pitchers on the clock.

    I feel that way about the OP as well, but this is neither the time nor place to discuss that.

    You should have to touch the base....it's unfair to the players that do

    AJ Pollock is called safe at first Tuesday night, and the replay clearly showed Brandon Belt got him with the sweep tag. Bochy asks for the play to be reviewed, and it's not overturned because they say it's inconclusive.. anyone that saw the replay would say he was out.

    2 batters latter Pollock is on third, passed ball by Posey, runner goes and Cain, covering the plate, gets his glove in front of the plate and Pollock slides into it.. Umpire calls him safe and Cain goes ballistic.. replay clearly shows Pollock never even touched the plate. 100% chance that play is overturned, accept the Giants already burnt their replay..

    D-Backs win by one run, meanwhile the guy that scored the winning run was clearly out twice that inning.

    Smartest thing ever....

    The most boring of all sports is going to make it even more boring while they review replays.

    Hey, how about this? Hire some fucking umpires that know how to do their simple jobs. :smile:

    I had my doubts about Belt, but it looks like he's putting it all together.. Bonds took him under his wing this spring
