    Huh? What? Blown calls (on the bases) is the game's biggest offender, but MLB IS NOT going to implement a "blown call" review?

    If we are going to review fair/foul calls... or trap calls... why not blown calls? This part of the story rally ticks me off...

    So, it's okay if the umpire's blow the call.. just as long as the game starts and finishes in the time allotted?

    It shouldn't be that big a problem, depending on whether or not they limit how many a team can ask for. A limit of three or so a game per team should be fine, as there's not THAT many blown calls. That would add ten maybe fifteen minutes to a game, but it's worth it, IMO. Home runs (liners) and and such should be a league review, not a team review, unless they also institute a system where if you win the review, it doesn't get charged to your limit.

    Let's use the "Red Flag" system like Football uses... except... if the manager loses the challenge, his team forfeits their next at bat.
