What Do You About Using Technology to Call Balls and Strikes in

    I have a running debate with my brother about using technology to call ball and strikes in major league baseball.  My bro contents that by using existing technology, such as Questec, it will help level the playing field for all the teams (when it comes to calling balls and strikes.

    I think it would really take away from the entertainment value of baseball.  And let's face it, debating umpire calls makes for great "water cooler" discussions. But I have a great fear that once technology gets employed in baseball it will take over the game.

    What do you think?

    I tend to agree with you on that point. Plus it would be far too unweildy to manage a game electronically. I do think there is room for instant replay for bang bang plays in the field, but calling balls and strikes should be a purely human occupation.

    I hate the idea.  I hate the idea of instant replay...of technology dealing with balls and strikes...I think it'll take too much character out of the game. 

    The game is glorious as it is.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
