As well as close calls at the bases. Why you seem to go on and on about stupid shit is beyond me. Bats are wood to protect the pitchers, and other reasons. Nobody ever said anything about reviewing strikes, in fact youre the only one who mentioned it, and youve continued to go on and on about it. What the Chuck runs through your head when you post this bullshit? i just have to ask if Olsen and yourself were born retarded, or did it take years of practice to make it happen?
My stance is replay Homeruns only. The point I'm trying to make is where does it end and why? How is a called third strike clearly 1 foot outside any different then a guy called out who was safe by a step @ first base? Other than if you hit a swinging bunt in the infeild you don't deserve to be called safe anyways. On a ball called a strike, you're not even given a chance. Even worse if its called early in the count, which is basically taking the bat out of the hitters hand anyways.
To make a long story short, balls and strikes or more game chaning than fair/ foul balls and close on base calls. Although not the case to the media and the average fan.
And this talk of advancement in technology. Many fans come to see the long ball and offense, so why not give the hitters an advantage of doing so.
Just stating both sides of the fence here.
