Welcome to this week’s Al East Round Up.
Yesterday, the Blue Jays won a game that was protested by the Tampa Bay Rays. After a reviewed pick off play, Joe Maddon still did not agree with how the review process was used. For the first year of instant replay, there have been some mixed feelings about the process. Mostly, people are complaining about the length of he process itself. These people usually can be calmed with the idea that they will be getting the call right. What strikes me is just how often the umpires are correct. Their micro-second decision making skills are impressive.I have enough trouble deciding on which shirt to wear. Anyway, this week, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the use of replay and reviews over the past little while.
Without further ado, I’ll present you with some instances of reviews and you should decide if you agree with the outcome. Are there some plays that even the crew at MLB Headquarters in New York got wrong? Is there a team who benefits more from reviews? Is there one that seems to lose these reviews often? Feel free to leave your opinion below. Here we go.
