Do You Like the New Replay Rules in the MLB?[FAN Poll of the day]

The owners and higher ups of Major League Baseball finally took a step forward as it pertains to their rules on instant replay.  For the first time, calls at first base, at home plate and on the bases will be reviewable.  There will be limited exceptions, including the fabled “neighborhood play” at second base.  But MLB executive Tony La Russa, one of the architects of the new system, estimated that almost 90 percent of all potential calls are now reviewable.

“I am very pleased that instant replay will expand to include additional impactful plays,” MLB commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement.  “The new system will give managers valuable recourse in potentially game-changing situations.  The opportunity for our fans to see more replays in our ballparks is also an important modification that the clubs and I favored.”

If you want to see a complete layout of the new rules and how they will be implemented follow the link above.  That brings us to our FAN poll of the day.
