Instant Replay? Yea or nay?

So, only a couple weeks into the season and we all know the instant replay has once already majorly backfired. (In case you missed it - see here, MLB admits wrong call was made in replay challenge against the Yankees.)

Despite the issue of whether or not the instant replay challenge system will actually work (reduce bad calls. duh.), baseball fans have loudly voiced a wide range of feelings on its introduction to the league.

Some embrace its long awaited debut. Some think it's another change leading to the sport of baseball's demise. Others aren't really sure just what to think yet. The major issue, besides the effectiveness of the system, seems to be that of time and integrity. Does this change the time honored traditions of baseball officiating? Will baseball games be even longer than ever now?

Whatever the outcome is, we shall see, but I think we'll deal. Hopefully next time it will work out in our favor. As put nicely by this article, "The national audience that's tolerated seven years of Daisuke Matsuzaka's pitching without staging an armed revolt doesn't get to choose instant replay as the hill it's going to die on."
