It took less than a minute for the umps to get it right, and I'm not exaggerating. So all you that say replay wastes time......you're wrong. Trust me, I was all for him staying at second, but the right call is just that....it's the right call.
I was never against the homerun replay. Ball parks are designed to look like a circus anymore, and it is nearly impossible to determine by the naked eye some of the balls that barely make it over like ARods, even if you are standing right over it. Even with the replay of ARods homer, you can't be 100% certain that it was going over the fence with the ball coming down at that trajectory. The camera did protrude past the fence by 6" or so.
