Why no Replay?

So I saw the end of the Angels-White Sox game and was shocked at the way it ended. I am still amazed at sports that do not use Instant Replay. Why when there is the option to use instant replay do major sports not use it? The game should not have ended, that much is clear from the tv replays. The umpire made the wrong call, yet the main fault is not his, its Bud Selig’s and all those who refuse to be dragged into the 21st century. Replay would not add that much time to games that are already way too long. Heck it might even speed games up since there would be less hesitation on the part of umpires and less need for the overly dramatic screaming in the face antics of Managers.

Let's see, the ump is behind the catcher who is hunched up pretty much in the fetal position in front of the ump, there is no mark in the dirt, and the catcher just threw the ball to the pitcher indicating he caught it... but the ump saw it hit the ground before it went in his glove? koskesh, gende, koonie, ahmag, beesheur, @#$@#!!

Worst call in baseball history! Better not bite the angels in the ass. I'll be pissed.

On a good note, Mike Soccia is a class act. He took the high road and said let's move to the next game. GREAT manager!

Cali-J ueber alles in der Welt. Some think that I am mean; (I call them friends), in fact I am not that mean. What I am is sarcastic and dry to the sandpaper level. I have friends that I have never said a kind word to their face, but I praise to the ends of the earth to anyone I know and will defend them to the end. That’s just how I roll! My boys know that I am down for them, my girls know that no matter what I will keep them safe (and occasionally flirt with them [If you are a female friend of mine and think I haven’t flirted with you it just means you didn’t notice, it was extremely subtle or…not yet ]). No one is safe from my sarcasm even my own parents; hence of course as a kid I spent a significant amount of time in punishment. I treat people with respect if I think they deserve it – everyone starts off with the same amount of respect from me (a lot). You don’t need to earn my respect; you have to keep my respect.
