Before replay became a part of baseball, I was all for it. It sounded great on paper: if the umpires make a questionable call, the team who has been negatively affected can challenge the call and have it overturned. It seemed like a great system; the games would be called more correctly, and egregious mistakes like Jim Joyce's blown call on Andres Gallaraga's would-be perfect game would be corrected. All of the old guys I know told me how terrible it would be, and like a fool, I didn't believe them. I was wrong.
Baseball is supposed to be a game that's fun. That's why I don't mind if I see a hitter bat flip after a clutch home run or if I see a pitcher get pumped after striking out a guy in a big spot- baseball is a fun game, and the players should be able to have fun and show it. Do you know what was fun? Watching guys like Earl Weaver, Sweet Lou Piniella and Larry Bowa get into arguments with the umpires after a blown call. Watch these:
I suppose I wouldn't mind replay if it took maybe a minute or less instead of being two minutes long. Either way, I miss the aspect of baseball where the managers/players and the umpires went at each other like they really hated each other. It was part of the game I remember growing up. It's just so entertaining to watch someone lose their shit the way the managers above do, and the game is deprived of it now because MLB decided to let the job of a man be done by a robot.
