Great call at first, on the tag!

Nice and quick, too, without the clown act that would have likely occurred previous to replay.

totally agree .........

I actually think this is FASTER than the argument that would insue ....and ..... it's easing relations between managers and umpires (my .02)

I agree....and it keeps the umpires off the front page of Deadspin. Good for all concerned.

      Wanted to reach through the TV last night and choke Gary Cohen and Ron Darling during last night's Mat's game. 
      Gary:  "You know, ever since these umpires started setting up the way they do, between the catcher and the batter. There's no way they see the outside half of the plate, they're only guessing" 
      Ron:  "Well Gary, I would say it's an educated guess"

      On a bases loaded grounder back to F1 ..... he flips to F2 for the apparent force at home ..... not so fast!
      The downside of replay (or upside) ...it can see just about anything.  I think Mark Ripperger, from his angle had the out, as we probably all would have called it .....
      This is the stuff you see now, thanks to replay

      It just happened in Detroit .....
      JD Martinez on first base ............shot to center, dropped ball (not seen) originally called out, and JD Martinez supposedly doubled-up.
      Long review ... OVER RULED, and they place JDM at third, and gave Casey McGehee a single.
      After the long review Farrell is still pissed off, and he wouldn't shut up , Scott Barry just dumped him!
      Can't wait to see this video from MLB.com !  Stay tuned
      We always discussed that here, that this type of play would be the most difficult to accomplish because if the placement of the runners.
