    why baseball needs instant replay part two 

    puig and the outfield

    because today the most exciting player in baseball, Little League Puig

    crashed into the right field wall at Wrigley, the ball bounced off the padding

    and he caught it

    and the first base umpire called it an out.

    thank God the other umps huddled up after being yelled at by the Cubs

    and they said yeah no, it’s a foul ball.

    there should be no huddle.

    if the Cubs are gonna build a three hundred million dollar scoreboard, show it on that thing.

    let the umps watch it with everyone else. just like we’re doing now.

    “but tony this will extend games by 20 minutes a game!”

    IT’S BASEBALL IF YOU’RE IN SOME CRAZY HURRY, GO HOME WE DONT WANT YOU

    take your time, get the call right, use omg modern day technology.

    there are so few things we can get right the first time, moments after it occurred.

    since when did we become the country who consciously avoided doing what it took to be correct?

    this way, when yasiel puig nearly kills himself bouncing around a 100-year-old brick stadium

    when you tell your friend, omg did you see that catch?

    they’re really seeing a great play. and not a bad call.
